Eyebrows were raised in the smartphone business today when, following their unveiling of the Windows 7 Phone platform at MWC2010 recently, Microsoft launched an Android app. "Tag" is a barcode reading app which they also launched on the iPhone, J2ME, Blackberry and Symbian S60 handsets. On the face of it this is hardly revolutionary, but the trend to have a single app for all popular platforms may be what's behind this move. The barcodes Tag can recognise though are different - they are color, and so hold much more data than the usual black and white (even 2D) ones.
