Microsoft unveiled Mango today, and it was yummy!
In addition to yesterday's post about Mango, we want to add some details about an important feature: Bing Vision.
Directing the phone’s camera at visual codes (bar, QR, etc.), book, DVD, album covers, posters, etc. users can see results in a flash – no need to take a picture and wait. Through deep linking, Bing Vision will instantly display multiple descriptions, reviews, prices, and even places to buy the product (deep linking apps like Amazon.com). Bing Vision will make cross-shopping much easier than ever before.
Our Windows Phone 7 application development team loves cooking with Mango (I know - at some point I promise to stop with the puns... but not yet... Mango is just too tasty!)
