Now that it's graduating and moving out of beta, Microsoft's home grown bar-code technology app is now available for a handful of mobile platforms. Microsoft Tag has been in the works for the better part of the last 18 months, but now it's finally being made available for download to Android, BlackBerry, Symbian, Windows Mobile, Palm OS, and the iPhone. Using a technology called HCCB, High Capacity Color Barcode, the application basically allows users link content onto a web site, video, address book, and even customize them with the Tag Manager. Since its introduction as a beta, Microsoft has said that “more than one billion Tags have been printed by people and businesses all over the world.” Finally, it's also available for J2ME phones, but it's worth noting that specific version is still in beta. If you haven't experience Microsoft Tag yet, you can simply do that by typing in http://gettag.mobi into your phone's web browser.
