Canon Europe has announced that its newly launched Canon imageFORMULA P-150 has been recognised by International Forum (iF) Design in its awards for the most outstanding quality designs in the marketplace.
The Canon imageFORMULA P-150 was selected from almost 2,500 entries as a winner of the iF product design awards 2010 and can now display the coveted iF quality seal, an internationally recognized trademark for outstanding design. iF Design’s online exhibition has now launched to showcase the winning products, including the Canon imageFORMULA P-150 in the ‘Computer’ category.
Launched in November 2009, the Canon imageFORMULA P-150 is one of the fastest, smallest USB-powered A4 duplex scanners on the market, providing a portable “scan-anywhere” solution. It is perfect for mobile users who need to scan and transfer documents remotely whilst its tiny footprint and stylish design make it well-suited for SoHo environments, where desk space may often be limited. The simple-to-use operation and in-built software also allows users to start scanning quickly using any laptop or PC.
Prakash Naidoo, product manager at Canon SA says, “The Canon design team have reinvented the portable scanner with the one of the fastest, lightest, quickest products in its class. It combines looks, with its contemporary black-piano style finish and user-friendly features, with some truly outstanding performance characteristics demonstrating we are leading the way in imaging technology, innovation and style in this market.
“This award marks the first time that iF Design has recognised the outstanding qualities of a Canon scanner with an automatic document feeder, meaning it is perfect for ad hoc scans through to large batches. As a company we continue to push the boundaries of product development and can bring the contemporary, classic feel of our consumer products into the business arena, with stunning results.”
