Hi Leandro,
As a valued customer, we wanted to inform you that Ion Audio will not be moving forward with production of the BookSaver. We pride ourselves on supplying our customers with a quality product at a reasonable price, and this item has failed to meet our expectations.
We do have a limited quantity of other scanning products in our current line that may meet your needs – the DocuScan and the CopyCat. Please call us at 888-800-0681 and we will provide a 20% discount should you decide to place an order.
Thank you

Now it seems official. IonAudio has aborted its effort to produce its booksaver.

For those of us not quite sophisticated to manufacturer our own, it would be very nice if some was willing to provide builds of working book scanners.

I thought the IonAudio design and price looked ideal for someone like me looking for entry level. Anyone else going to take a shot? I would be even pay double ($300 vs. IonAudio's planned $150 price tag).

I just received from ION Audio:

"we wanted to inform you that Ion Audio will not be moving forward with production of the BookSaver. We pride ourselves on supplying our customers with a quality product at a reasonable price, and this item has failed to meet our expectations. "

Product line apparently cancelled. :?
