This diminutive scanner is about half the price of other portable scanners, such as the Doxie Go and Xerox Mobile Scanner. But its size means it's limited to scanning smaller items like business cards and register receipts. And using it to scan these can require practice and patience. If you're looking for the smallest portable scanner available, you might find the SlimScan interesting. If you're looking for something that you can take anywhere to scan anything, consider one of its competitors.
