Google has announced that Android handset owners can take advantage of barcode scanning support built into Product Search. Using the Barcode Scanner app, users can scan UPC/ISBN codes to pull up results on their browser.
At the moment, Google claims that the service works best with "products like electronics, books, movies or video games," but they are working to bring more products on board. Hopefully the iPhone will be able to take advantage of this service sometime in the near future. [Google via MobileCrunch]
