No sooner have Samsung announced its intention to preload all their latest mobile phone models with a ready-to-use QR Code scanner, LG follows suit. Samsung announced their intention late 2008, and it was rather apparent that LG will follow the same track.

Anyway, soon, when you purchase an LG mobile phone, it will delight you to no end to find that it is already preloaded with ScanLife’s 2D barcode application.
Despite having a rather late start in the mobile phone manufacturing and marketing industry, LG shows energetic aggressiveness in bending to the consumers’ needs. It is now the third largest mobile phone manufacturer in the world, believe it or not. ScanLife’s 2D barcode reader can read EZCode, DataMatrix and also the QR Code. There have been questions about whether ScanLife is going to include Microsoft’s new follow-up to the 2D barcode fad called Microsoft Tag, but at the point of writing this article, no news of that.
