    Yep it's been requested over and over again.

    Just look at the numbers on the barcode, type them into google.

    Ohh it can be, but with the slowwww camera speeds it would take a while.

    You would have to take the pic, the program would then have to read it (if it can't read it you will have to take another pic) then try to fetch the results using a search engine.

    How about ditching the BB OS for Android? I know it has been posted before, but it would be great if someone ported Android for the Storm.

    I haven't played with Android. Why would you want to port Big Brother's OS?

    Have you ever used the G1 app? It never actually takes a picture. it just uses the camera and reads the barcode all you do point the camera at the barcode and let to focus (focus is automatic) then when it can it reads the bar code.

    For now you can use this. Guy I knew in High School developed it and it won an award from Yahoo I guess...I dunno, I don't keep up with him much as we were more of acquaintances.

    there is this barcode scanner, although it is not what you are looking for, it certainly proves the blackberrys ability to do it.

    oh, still not to 10
