Sony Ericsson has applied for a patent that would allow camera-equipped cell phones to take pictures or videos of objects and then use on-board pattern recognition software to determine what the object is. It would display text on the screen with the name of the object. The patent also says that if he software can't determine the exact name of the object, that it at least be able to classify the object as part of a group. The patent includes the capability to use multiple languages, store object names in the phone's memory, and geotag objects captured and identified. Sony Ericsson first applied for the patent in June 2007. Sony Ericsson has not said if/when it would include such a feature in its cell phones.
