2D Barcodes are not really new. It's a technology which has been in use for some time now. Most of the uses though may be found where inventory is important with multiple details being held within each 2D barcode. Unlike regular barcodes which are in use in most places like groceries and shops, the 2D barcode can store much more data.

Another company has set out to make this more public in regions other than Japan where 2D barcodes are very common nowadays. TMS is another 2D barcode which is simplified but designed for mobile use. The company M MEDIA 2.0, has decided to release this in Asia initially in the Philippines. Their reason is that the Philippines is the largest SMS consumer in Asia thus making it a more viable place to test their service with.

This service is similar to what Windows Live Barcode is set to offer. This works like QR Code, or DataMatrix. The nice thing is that the company has included Windows Mobile devices in its list of available TMS barcode readers.

How it works.

These barcodes can be included in various products or merchandise to immediately connect the user to the website, or multimedia content that the 2D barcode is pointed to.
