Mango w7 Bing Universal Qr MsTag reader: kudos
This post on engadget is a big deal - http://www.engadget.com/2011/05/24/windows-phone-mango-and-bing-vision-hands-on/
As part of the mango windows 7 os, microsoft has created an app called “bing vison” which is very similar to google googles but allows for image recognition, mstag scanning, and QR code scanning. This is the worlds FIRST universal scanner! I give kudos to microsoft for creating such an app.
QrArts has expressed that a Universal reader is essential to clear the barriers to entry for mobile tagging and to allow users to full embrace mobile engagement. Since microsoft has access to the mstag algorithm this is quite an easy task for them, where as google googles cannot decode mstags. This new apps will allow for the 2 most popular 2d barcodes to be decoded, as well as serve as a transition to image recognition mobile triggers. I personally am very excited to see this type of app being released on the windows 7 mango os, and hope that bing vision becomes available for both iOs and Android phones.
Thank you Microsoft.
