Microsoft Puts 'Tag' App on Android OS [news.bbc.co.uk]
Microsoft has made an application that works with Google's Android phone.
Called Tag, the free software uses a handset's camera to turn it into a mobile barcode reader.
It is the first application Microsoft has made for the Android operating system - one of the key rivals to Windows Mobile.
Android is among the last to get the Tag application which is available on Windows phones, the iPhone, Blackberry and Symbian handsets.
It's worth noting, this is Microsoft's 'tag' and the app doesn't handle barcode or QR codes.
