Nokia has introduced an innovative service concept - Nokia Point & Find - that enables people on the move to access relevant information and services on the Internet, simply by pointing their mobile phone camera at real-life objects. A beta version of the technology, focusing on movies, is available in the UK and US.

When the phone is pointed at an object, Nokia Point & Find uses a variety of the phone's capabilities, including the camera, Internet connectivity, and GPS positioning to evaluate the object. Then, by rapidly searching through a database of virtually tagged items, the system identifies the object and returns a set of links to associated content and services.Visit http://pointandfind.nokia.com for more information.
