There are phones in Japan which require this dual mode interface
primarily for scanning barcodes. What happens is that users need to aim
their cameras via CLI with the phone closed then reopen to process the
result. You'd be amazed has how something seemingly simple is fairly
complex in terms of alternate pathes, error conditions(eg, low battery,
signal, low memory, etc)
btw, the barcodes being scanned are simply for price info but actual
product info and rich media. In many cases, companies will display
multiple barcodes which can then be 'stitched together to play music,
video, animations, etc.
