          Business Card Reader 2.0 for Nokia smartphones running on Symbian S60 was released yesterday. The new application tool allows the direct transfer of contact information from business cards to the smartphone’s address book with the help of the phone camera and text recognition technology.


           The application saves time and effort by eliminating the need to type in names, phone numbers, e-mails, etc. Users can easily add new contacts by starting the program and taking a picture of a business card. Business Card Reader 2.0 reads this picture, extracts the data and enters it into the mobile address book.
          ABBYY Business Card Reader 2.0 can recognize various types of contact information, such as First Name, Last Name, Title, Company, Phone Numbers, Fax, E-mail, and Web site. It also allows users to add a photograph of a contact person. The application recognizes 16 languages including English, German, French, Italian, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, Indonesian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Portuguese (Brazilian), Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish and Ukrainian. 
          “This simple yet efficient application promises to be of great use and value to business professionals and anyone who communicates with many people in work and personal life”, said Katya Solntseva, director of mobile products department at ABBYY. “What makes the application truly stand out is the accuracy and intelligence it delivers when extracting contact information from images of business cards. It allows users to get all information from business cards quickly saved in their phone book, rather than just the names and phone numbers people usually type in manually.”
