BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Nov. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Brother International Corporation, a leader in small business technology, today announced the expansion of its compact scanner line-up with the addition of the DSmobile® DS-700D with duplex color scanning capabilities. The new scanner joins the popular DS-600, and helps provide easy monochrome and color scanning options for virtually every type of application – whether you are a mobile professional, using at home or in the office. The newly-enhanced DSmobile product line addresses the needs of small to mid-size businesses by helping to cost-effectively increase productivity by enabling busy office workers the ability to convert a large variety of hard-copy documents to electronic files for easy storage and organization.

"We realize that many of our customers are looking for ways to better organize their paperwork at home and on the road," said Steve Feldstein, Director of Marketing for Brother Laser and Scanner products. "The addition of the DS-700D scanner will give our customers another choice when looking for a compact scanner to use at their desk, or on-the-go."

The addition of the DS-700D will help consumers quickly and efficiently manage their documents with greatly enhanced capabilities such as high-speed duplex scanning, which enables users to quickly scan two-sided documents in a single pass. The DS-700D is also highly versatile and can easily scan all types of media – from paper documents and business cards, to thicker laminated materials such as insurance cards, driver licenses or ID cards. The included Presto! BizCard® software allows for scanning and exporting contact information directly to Microsoft® Outlook and other contact management programs.

The DS-600 and new DS-700D are both compact, lightweight and portable, making them perfect for desktop or on-the-go use. They are powered by an included USB cable, making them easily accessible to a laptop or desktop computer power supply wherever they go – no battery or wall outlet required. Their easy-to-use functionality helps make the DSmobile® compact scanners the perfect solution to help reduce paper clutter and get more organized.
