Certainly. I bookmarked it as well. And i thought that the codes are useful only for storing Links. When i visited this site, i got to know that its lot more than just links!

ok just curious. Are there any Secret kinda QR codes? i mean they have to be mobile phone model specific! for example When a samsung SII scans a certain QR code they'll be directed to say google.comAnd when a LG optimus user scans the same QR code he'll be directed to any other website like yahoo.com ?

QR Codes are a standardized format. It is the website that can do the detection and redirect the user to different web pages.

So a website can know from which device we are accessing their site. So it CAN redirect users according to their phone models right?

well i saw that when i visit some mobile sites like zedge and mobile9.com they automatically detect the model of the phone am using.

So i got this doubt.

are you sure they display model specific pages? platform specific pages are a norm. android devices would get the android section and so on. model specific pages? i have never seen that happen.

i suppose it should be possible to detect the exact model number in the native browser on different devices. :)
