[filmscanners] Re: Polaroid - scanner line ends and SS120 glasscarrier availabile soon



Hi Simon,

I am going to try to get some more details about this situation.

Have you been told that this is try of all products in the Sprintscan
line, or just the SS120?  Also, are you sure this isn't just a situation
for non-North American distribution.

Lastly, it is certainly possible the name will be changed after a sell
off of the division.

I'll see what I can dig up about this.
