I don't know of any other Australians who have a Flip-Pal mobile scanner. Some of my Australian GeniMates are envious of my little toy in its emerald green case that I purchased at the recent Rootstech Conference in Salt Lake City.
A number of Australians are wondering when the Flip-Pal will be available in Australia. I mentioned this to the people at Flip-Pal when I finally registered my unit this week. They responded with thie message for my Australian friends:
"As you well know, we do not yet distribute in Australia. We are actively
investigating what that would take. It is a matter of both the
distribution/support processes as well as regulatory approvals and it is
hard to set a date for those kinds of things. Just have your friends
regularly check our website.
Thanks for your inquiry.
My Flip-Pal sits beside my computer ready for action. If a document up to about A4 size comes my way I immediately scan it with the Flip-Pal. The procedure for scanning small documents is easier and more time effective than scanning with my larger scanner. My light little Pal goes with me in my laptop bag when I visit libraries, archives and elderly aunts.
If you don't know about this marvellous item take a look at this video in which Dear Myrtle demonstrates a Flip-Pal.
