A month ago, I wrote at http://goo.gl/lQhfd about the new Scandock device turns your Apple or Android smartphone into a professional-grade scanner for pictures, documents, and books. It looks like a great device but the price of $499 seemed a bit high to me. I wrote, "At that price, I think I'll skip it. I know of other scanning solutions that are a lot cheaper than $499." Now the manufacturer has dropped the price to $399.
The new advertisement states that the price is "For a limited time only. This promotion ends on September 20, 2013."
You can learn more at http://www.scandock.com/.
Even at the lower price, I don't think I will buy one. Instead, I will repeat what I wrote last month: "However, if you do purchase a Scandock, please drop me a note to tell me how you like it. If applicable, and if you give me permission, I'll publish your comments here in the newsletter for the benefit of others who may be thinking of purchasing a similar unit."
