According to the resource Intomobile, the company Nokia is working on improving the technology OCR (Optical Character Recognition - OCR) for their mobile devices. Now at an early stage of development is a project whose goal is to recognize and transfer footage to the camera cell phone or smartphone text. This may be particularly relevant for those users who frequently visit other countries. With this technology they can get the converted version of the pictures of signboards, road signs and any other textual information, and then translate it.

Such technology could be implemented earlier, but it makes a poor quality image, which can be obtained by using camera phones. But now, some mobile devices are 8 and even 12 megapixel integrated camera, a 5 megapixel camera is already widespread. Therefore, in the near future, obviously, with phones and Nokia smartphones will be free to travel without fear of getting lost in the country with another language. After all, they can easily transfer all encountered the name.
