MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 26, 2007) - Fujitsu Canada, Inc. today introduced the easy to use Fujitsu ScanSnap S300 scanning solution, the world's smallest colour, automatic document feeder (ADF) scanner. At eight double-sided pages per minute (ppm), the ScanSnap S300 is a performance leader in its category. With an ultra-compact footprint measuring just 11.2" x 3.7" x 3.0" and weighing approximately 3 lbs., the ScanSnap S300 scanner is small enough to fit on a desk or in a briefcase or laptop bag. The ScanSnap S300 is ideal for three groups: 1) the home consumer 2) the home worker (SOHO) and 3) the mobile professional. With the ScanSnap S300, Fujitsu offers consumers and home-based workers an easy solution to electronically organize bills, statements, receipts and other documents at home. For traveling professionals such as insurance or real estate agents, the ScanSnap S300's portability provides the ability to scan customer documents anywhere at anytime and complete business transactions more efficiently.

Users simply load a stack of up to 10 documents into the ADF and press the "SCAN" button to produce PDF files at speeds of up to 8 pages per minute (ppm) for single-sided documents and 16 images per minute (ipm) for double-sided documents.
