Microsoft has announced that the Bing Image Matching for Newspapers feature will be launched in the UK for Windows Phone 7 in March 2012. Bing Image Matching for Newspapers will enable users of Windows Phone 7 to search digital versions of magazine and newspaper articles in more than 3,000 publications. The new update will be available to customers through Bing Vision. By using the camera of their phone, users will have to take a photo of an article and then they will be directed to its online version.
Customers in the UK can now use Bing Vision to obtain information from QR codes and Microsoft tags. By using their phone’s camera, they can also scan barcodes, CD, DVD, and book covers. Through Bing Vision, users can now get details about the local availability and cost comparison statistics regarding various products. This will help consumers to easily select and buy products on the go.
