Comparison Shopping via Camera Phone

By Deane Barker on October 2, 2003

Direct Link to Amazon.com for Book Price Shoppers…: How long before camera phones are banned in Barnes and Noble?

“‘Now, shoppers can take out their Nokia 3650 camera phone at Barnes & Noble, Border’s, or just about any other book store, and just take a picture of the ISBN on the book to comparison shop at Amazon.com right on the screen of their wireless Web browser,’ Jensen said. ‘It’s kind of a high-tech version of the Santa Claus at Macy’s sending Christmas shoppers to Gimbels in the classic movie, “Miracle on 34th Street”,’ he mused.”

All made possible via the wonderful Amazon API. When will Barnes and Noble get it? Empower the hackers and they will build things for you.
