My nephew played with my N82 yesterday when he was over. He asked me how to use the barcode scanner function that came with it. I told him i dont know as all i saw on the screen is something going from left to right, right to left, left to right, continuously. It doesnt seem to be able to read nor capture anything. I told him not to compare it to the ls2208 his Dad uses at the shop. All i can say is that the barcode scanner function on the N82 is useless, lol.
