T-mobile G1 android gets big in Japan
This has got to be the coolest application I have heard about all day, Big in Japan Inc,. a mobile application idea factory based in Dallas revealed ShopSavvy. You can get this Application on the Android market on Googles first phone on T-Mobile the G1. If you’re wondering what the hell the application does well there is a clue in the name? OK, no time for games ShopSavvy originally called GoCart actually is a personal shopping assistant.
Basically you go into any shop, find something you like find the barcode on the item and take a photo with your T-Mobile G1 built in camera, ShopSavvy will then search the web and find you the best price on your chosen product, including on-line stores as well as high street retail shops.
So now you can do virtual shopping and touch the item at the same time, you will also be given a review of the item to help you decide, this kind of shopping is fantastic, who needs to carry shopping bags.
The T-Mobile G1 android phone application actually won a prize at the Google challenge, which was a contest to build a mobile-phone application; Big in Japan won $275,000. Good job to I think this is revolutionary piece of software.
