Vodafone has been showing off an interesting twist on search from your mobile phone called Otello. The search engine uses images rather than words and to use it you take a picture with your camera phone.

The image is sent via MMS to the search service which sends search results back to the user just like a typical search result.

According to Pocket-lint you can search from images of a book, newspaper, or place. It would be pretty cool if you could take actual pictures of items and search for reviews and pricing information too.
