Bing Vision – Now Live in the UK

An amazing feature that was only fully useable stateside is now here in the UK the Bing Vision feature, which allows your Windows Phone 7 handset to search for things using the camera. Point the camera at visual codes (bar, QR, etc.) and it will be recognized along with book, movie, and album covers — the results just pop up. The OS can even identify and translate text in real-time, something you can see toward the end of the video below. Naturally, though, all of this relies on an active data connection.

This is a massive feather in Microsofts cap and remember this ready to use out of the box no app/apps to buy another reason to choose WP7!

My Nokia Lumia 800 is rockin it right now and I know will be something I will use all the time on my travels!
