Nokia opens Beta Labs! On the new Beta Labs site Nokia is releasing beta applications and services based on new ideas and innovations to improve on the current applications and services.Of these applications I think the “Mobile Code” (aka.

Currently the local Hong Kong mobile carrier PCCW Mobile is using this Datamatrix as a form of proof of purchase for cinema ticket purchased on line at the local online ticket office Cityline.com.hk

This is truly an innovative approach to a problem of presenting and consolidating data feeds on a mobile phone.The concept reminds me of AvantGo that was popular on the PalmOS platform many years ago.
