Some Finlandianites will be launching the first "smart phone books" in the spring of 2006. This service will work with a variety of cell phones including nine Nokia models, three Ericsson models, two Samsung and pretty much any phone that is Symbian 60-based.

Upcodes of the smart phone book can be read with a mobile phone camera. The user is automatically directed to the Internet pages indicated by the Upcodes.


I'm still not sure what they mean by Upcodes. The Upcodes website gives me no help because I missed phone book technology day in my Finnish 101 class. Can any Finnish-savvy readers help us out, or does anybody even know what an Upcode is?
