Photo to Text with Cameras?

Images-26 Interesting- this new camera from Samsung will come with photo to text software “You can shoot documents such as books, papers and magazines then extract text from the image taken using the “Digimax Reader” text recognition software included in the box”. Kinda handy if it works well, I suspect the software would work with any image from other cameras. Current OCR software might be able to do this now, but not optimized for digital cameras. Would be neat to have this in cell phone cameras to auto-populate text messages. [via] Link.
