I will admit that I have never really been that excited about camera phones for the most part. The images they take are usually grainy, poorly lit and just aren’t usable for the most part. Sure it's cool in theory to have a camera with you at all times, but the reality of most camera phone optics is that images just aren't usable.

LG will be bundling something that is cool with its camera phones in the form of an application from Scanbuy that allows users of LG camera phones to take a picture of all major 2D barcode formats and then connect the user to more information about the product.

This is something that I would like to see on more phones. We have all been standing at a store looking at some product wondering if it offers the features we want while some sales person who knows less about the product than you prattles on about what a good deal it is. With this application, you can simply shoot a pic of the barcode and get your information.
