Abstract

Alternate configurations for a hand-held portable device that scans and prints are disclosed. The device, with full page width scanning, produces a copy by passing over input and output respectively. Scanned data is accumulated while passing the device over the surface of an input document. The scanned data is either transmitted to an attached computer or other device, or retained in a full page buffer within the device. After the device is converted from input to output operation, scanned data is printed as the device is passed over a receiving sheet.
