Nokia's Future Mobile Phone does your shopping

Nokia is currently developing a new mobile phone which would enable shoppers to take a picture of what they want to buy and then order it online. So the next time you go on one of your numerous shopping trips but don't want to buy a particular item(or don't have the cash) right then all you have to do is just grab your phone and take a snap of it. The phone then uses image recognition software to find an internet store in which the item is available. That is not the only thing. You can also take a snap of an entire menu card(which is not printed in english) and translate whatever is written in there. With this phone in hand you can just stride into any retaurant(Chinese, Japanese,Lebanese etc) without the fear of being linguistically humiliated.
