I've mentioned QR codes as my pick for new technology in 2008 and now Google is in on the action. Cool!

Now if they could only convince Apple to create decoding software for the iPhone I'd be all set.

Oh yea, Apple, can you have that out before April? That would really help me out.

Sprint and Scanbuy are not going to use QR 2D open standard codes.

Scanbuy only promotes Ezcode codes. Ezcode is a proprietary code. Ezcode is not standard. Scanbuy's scanlife can only scan Ezcode codes in the U.S.

Google's ZXING can read QR codes. Google's ZXING will be preinstalled on Google's Android application.
OMA, GSMA, MC2, Google,...are all working in the same direction.

Wow! Dlethe01, this is great information. I checked out your Mobile blog but was dissappointed to see that it was in French. I'll find my favorite posts and put them through babblefish and see how that works ;-)
Can you recommend a good resource for information in this space?
Thanks!
