    Mobile Tag’s solution now downloadable for GPhones and BlackBerry

    Advertisement



    via Press Release June 29,2009


    "Atlanta – Innovative French company and European 2D mobile barcode leader, Mobile Tag, announces today that its Datamatrix embedded software application mobiletag, that allows mobile phones to read 2D barcodes simply by using the phone's camera to provide quick access to external content such as movie trailers or promotional information, is now downloadable on the Android Market for GPhones, and on the BlackBerry App Store.
    The solution that was launched for all other mobile phones back in 2006 is now ready to be deployed on these smart phones and can now be downloaded for free via Android Market or BlackBerry App Store.
    "Mobile Tag is a company that constantly tries to stay one step ahead of the trends, closely following new hardware launches, which explains why we have adapted our mobiletag solution to ensure that a version compatible with smart phones such as the GPhones or BlackBerry is available for our customers as of today," comments Christian François Viala, Marketing and Communication Director at Mobile Tag.
    GPhones
    "Using the mobiletag software on the new GPhones from Google will give our users faster direct access to the Internet when they shoot a tag to obtain external content," continues Mr. Viala. "The main difference when using mobiletag on the GPhones will be that rather than using the phone's camera to take a snap shot of the 2D barcode, users will need to use their phones in video mode instead”.
    BlackBerry
    As for the GPhones, mobiletag for the BlackBerry Bold will also need to be used in video mode – saving time (as no snap shot needs to be captured) and offering an easier and more user-friendly interface. For all other BlackBerry models, the solution operates in its traditional snap shot mode. "

    Although I don't know that it is widely in use yet, this type of application has lots of potential...as this grows you will see these used for marketing, web URL's and even your own personal business cards. Once your device can read a 2D Bar you can simply read the bar code with your camera and be taken (by browser) directly to the information you want...

    I just created my own personal tag...and here is a bit more info from the company:

    Congratulations ! You just created your first Contact Tag.

    To download your Contact Tag :
    http://www.mobiletag.com/beta/xxx

    Now you can pass it out :

    - Print it on your business card
    - Insert it in your email signature
    - Display it on your web site
    - Print it on your badge

    Yeah the idea has been around for a long time, I still have a couple of rcq or cq cat scanners that radio shack gave away for free several years ago (over 10) but it basically hooked up to your PC and you scanned a barcode such as on a pop can, and it would take you to that companys website. ( at that time only about half the things I scanned were regonized and people were supposed to tell them about it when they came across barcodes that the system didnt see.. after about 5 forms of filling out the info I got bored and threw it in a drawer somewhere....


    The great thing is, that it will insert the code for the barcode into an excell sheet, and my wife want to use if for some jewerly, she sells, Hrmm wonder what the program will do for her.

    Note the correction to the original post - this is NOT only for Bold. I have it loaded and running on my 8900.

    It works in most Blackberry devices only difference is that in the Bold use a video camera and in the other blackberry devices use a snapshot like a pic, and is very popular on europe, that's what the site say, only thing I don't like is the menu in french.
    Is there a way to change it to English???

    I just Tested it out, Tried to use it for my avatar but I think its to small on this PC anyway.

    But it did work otherwise, was able to see it and also took me to a webpage with my info and a button to add contact, then checked my address book and there I was

    I noticed that someone did On the tagboard it keeps track of hits, and there were 3, 2 of which were me testing. fun fun, the joy technology, could you image how fast you could add contacts if there were a group and everyone put their tag out there, and its really fast, with the video bold recognition, i barely got my phone up to it and it had already got it.

    ealvnv, are you talking about the site ? if you are, then there are three flags on the top of the page, click the middle one...

    Its sort of like the bar codes on merchendise. Except that when you scan it(or take a picture of it) you can get more info on that particular item such as prices, locations where it is in stock near you(gps on the phone can help with that) or social options like how many of your friends like this product and what they think of it. Certainly the technology is here to do these things but more products or things have to have this code to do so.
