IFAIK there are two similar scaner out in the wild: Visoneer XP100 and
SYSCAN Travelscan 464. Probably the later one is the same as the ScanShell
800N... - Theses three devices seem to be the only LM983x based sheet-fed
devices, but I never got one on my desk, as theese devices turned to be
too expensinve for volunteer work and the guys that liked to make them work
were not able to lend me such devices...
The latests request and discussion I remember was in february 2003, so the
devices are rather old...
