In recent years, colour 2D barcodes have emerged to increase the data capacity of the 2D barcode. Similarly, camera-equipped mobile phones have became more popular and their camera could act as an input device for a barcode decoder. In this paper, three Windows Mobile (WM) operated mobile phones are used to test their camera performance in reading the colour 2D barcodes. From the results, recommendations are put forward to those who are developing colour 2D barcode reader for mobile phones.
