MobileMuse has a list of their top five predictions for the Canadian wireless industry.

#3. QR Code or a similar datatag standard will bring the long-awaited change in mobile internet usage. Not many people want to bother entering URLs on a mobile phone.
Sooner or later, one of the carriers will figure out the advantages of QR codes
(they already have) and launch a line of compatible handsets while earning millions through creating marketing solutions for business customers.

After speaking to the wireless carriers and the PWC companies at CTIA, Physical World Connection is reaching the tipping point in Europe. The second quarter of 07 is when we should see a couple major carriers adopt the ability to scan a 2d code using a camera phone.

I will have my CTIA summary shortly.
