How: Using any camera phone, the consumer snaps a picture of a brand logo, product package, or advertisement they'd like to know more about and transmits it. Instantly they are connected with personalized content which can include product information, promotional offers, coupons, and downloadables (ring tones, video clips, etc). SnapTell is fun and easy to use, works with any camera phone, and requires no software installation.
