The Bing UK team has published an interesting article on the official blog, detailing two new features coming to the search engine integration featured in Windows Phone. 

Bing Vision on Windows Phone already enables the user to detect product information scanning QR codes and Microsoft Tags with the camera, but now Bing Vision supports barcodes on CDs, DVDs and book covers. As well as picking up information on the product, the service will provide local availability and cost comparison for convenient shopping/price checking on the go. This feature goes live as of today (see above photo).

The second announcement covers the ability for users to take a photo of a newspaper (or magazine) article and Bing Vision will fetch the digital version, if available. Offering global access to users this feature, which is set to launch in March and will simply be added functionality to Bing Vision, will provide access to over 3,000 publications worldwide. Pretty neat, eh?
