Unique and time saving text entry methods always appeal to me. What if you could use the camera in your phone as an entry system for long URLs, detailed contact information and more? Wonder no more because you can do just that with Microsoft Tag. It’s a free application in beta for Windows Mobile, J2ME, Symbian S60, BlackBerry and iPhone. In today’s short video, I show you how easy it is to use for text and for web navigation.

Will it catch on? My gut says probably not, but I do like the fact that it takes advantage of a device most people already carry. Thanks to Mobility Site for pointing it out!

  1. I was using a similar trick with QRCode when I wanted to save an URL on my phone (Nokia N95 8GB):
    1 Copy the URL wanted
    2 Go to the website : http://qrcode.kaywa.com/
    3 Choose URL, paste in the field the URL you copied, choose the L size.
    4 Click on generate button
    5 Launch your Code reader application on your phone and point your camera on the screen.
    6 If it’s ok, you should be able to see the URL on your screen, just click and go !

    A bit long, but you didn’t type a word :)
