JOBO ScanViewer Digital Photo Frame With Built-in Scanner

By Andrew Liszewski

In one fell swoop JOBO has drastically simplified the process of getting printed photos into the digital realm with their aptly named ScanViewer digital photo frame. The 8-inch TFT LCD has a resolution of 800×600 pixels, while the built-in scanner located just below it can scan as high as 1200×1800 pixels. The automatic feeder will accept photos either 1.6″x2″ in size or the more common 4″x6″ format, and the digital versions can be stored on the frame’s 1GB of memory or copied to a memory card including compact flash, SD, MemoryStick and XD. And there’s even a USB connection for easily transferring the scans back to your PC. Expect the ScanViewer to be available sometime in December for about $380.

    My grandparents would love that. They have quite big collection of 10×14 photos.

    I'll wait for the refurb. I do like this though. Now, if I could only get interested in taking pictures.

    This is a wonderful idea for a specific demographic. As for me, I'd just take my SD card to any photo printing booth and save a bunch of money.

    Unless it's faster than a traditional scanner, I'm okay. Plus I have photos bigger than that size, so I'd never be able to scan them. Which is a shame.

    I can see where older generations would like the gift, but I don't like the limitations.

    Try again… they need 4×6 or smaller..

    This is really cool if you are looking for a digital photo frame and have a lot of smaller pictures laying around.. especially since it is such a hi-res scanner compared to the res of the screen you will have nice clean looking photos.

    Ability to get a quick copy of a photo is always useful.
