OK. So I went to CTIA knowing about mobile barcodes but a stream of events plus talking to founders of DataMatrix codes has left me feeling a bit like a guru.
I spoke to Scanbuy for its side of the CTIA saga. I got a response but was asked not to publicise it? I also got [...]
I have liked Qix for a long time. At the same time, I have felt the company has underperformed in Europe so the news that T-mobile is extending its rollout of Qix is good news.
What is T-Mobile doing?
1. It’s extending its range of devices that will have Qix integrated and the Nokia N70 is one of [...]
I got excited after viewing this presentation as David Miller the young CEO from Mobile Discovery managed to say all the right things. He spoke about interoperability of the 2D Barcode market in the US.
