Expect them to be more, especially if you split up the market from two types, handheld and base/mobile, into three types, handheld, desktop, and mobile. Added cost from the different SKUs will translate into higher costs for the users as well. Also expect the desktop model to be even more due to the physical size and most likely have added (often useless) features as well.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have the selection, but considering that the scanner market is pretty small to begin with, prices can only go up if they further fragment it and add costs due to additional materials for manufacturing, increased shipping & storage costs due to larger size cases (and associated increased weight), etc.
