NeoMedia Barcode Scanning Application to Be Pre-Loaded on Sony Ericsson Mobile Phones

Last update: 12/1/2009 8:01:00 AMATLANTA, Dec 01, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Today NeoMedia Technologies, Inc. (NEOM), the global leader in mobile barcode scanning solutions, announced that Sony Ericsson has selected NeoMedia as its strategic 2D barcode partner. Sony Ericsson will begin shipping phones pre-loaded with NeoMedia's NeoReader barcode scanning application globally in the 1st half of 2010. The NeoReader will be pre-installed across all Sony Ericsson platforms. "Sony Ericsson is very happy to work with NeoMedia as our global provider of barcode scanning solutions. We see great potential in the 2D barcode market and support NeoMedia's strategy to promote and drive the open 2D barcode standards. We are looking forward to working with NeoMedia to explore all the potential the technology enables," stated Robert Westin, Business Development Manager, with Sony Ericsson. Iain McCready, CEO of NeoMedia Technologies commented, "The marketplace is ready for 2D barcodes -- retailers and brands are already experimenting with them, and the technology has long been validated. The challenge is in creating a scalable pool of mobile users capable of scanning barcodes. This partnership with Sony Ericsson will make mobile barcode scanning a simple, out-of-the-box experience for consumers." McCready continued, "NeoMedia's vision has been to create an open and interoperable 2D barcode ecosystem which would provide a consistent and reliable consumer experience worldwide. This agreement with Sony Ericsson is another important step towards making this vision a reality and is part of NeoMedia's ongoing strategy to accelerate adoption through relationships with manufacturers, operators and brands alike." The NeoReader transforms camera phones into mobile barcode scanners which provide easy access to mobile content via 2D barcodes. The simple "one click" action makes the mobile internet much more accessible for mobile users. By scanning 2D barcodes via the phone's camera, users avoid typing in long URLs and navigating cumbersome mobile menus. The NeoReader is a universal barcode scanning application that reads all standard 1D and 2D barcode symbologies -- QR, Data Matrix, Aztec, UPC and EAN -- so users won't need multiple barcode readers.
