Nokia’s Point & Find service makes reality better


Engadget Nokia’s Point Find service makes reality better Nokia just tip-toed out for a glimpse at innovation with the beta release of its new Point Find application and service. Simply aim the camera of your Nokia phone at any object in meat-space and the Point Find application will access relevant data off the Internet. Ok, not any object as the beta only recognizes movie posters at the moment, but that’s the long term plan. Point Find uses real-time image processing to recognize real-world objects in a Nokia database of virtually tagged items using the phone’s camera, Internet connection, and GPS data. The software also recognizes bar codes and supports category-specific text-entry search. The beta software is a free download for Nokia owners in the UK and get this, the US too. Man, Nokia’s getting serious about US market share.Gallery: Nokia’s Point Find service makes reality better
