Ravishankar, there is a review at https://www.techinasia.com/piqxs-portable-scanner-change-books-digitized/
Among the cons it says "The inability to digitize books larger than your typical paperback novel is a crippling factor."

best wishes

Will piQx Xcanex Portable Book and Document Scanner be a good machine for scanning old and brittle books?

Retaining as much color and quality for OCR needs is also essential.

I am aware of the suggestions in this mail thread about using a smart phone or regular pocket camera for scanning documents.

But, I am looking at large scale GLAM projects where a community owned scanning machine would be appropriate.
