I am looking to purchase a Samsung Focus which currently has 7.0 installed. I will be looking to update this to Mango. I am looking to build a barcode scanner app for this platform and I am wondering if the phone capabilities on this model allows you to capture the barcode without having to click on the camera button to take the picture. I know this was not possible on the 7.0 version.
Also, is the Samsung Focus upgradeable for future releases or is it limited to Mango. If so, then I guess the Samsung Focus S would be a better option?

ShopSavvy was one of the first bar-code scanners to hit the Marketplace and it has quite the following, mostly because of its super "deal finder" capabilities. Sure, in Windows Phone Mango we actually have this feature built into Bing Vision, but ShopSavvy ain't half bad either. Now with version 1.8, ShopSavvy finally goes to Mango, making it reach its full potential by giving it live-scanning ability. In addition, you can now pin new scans directly to your Start screen, which is a great way to (a) remember you wanted that item or (b) quickly check on internet and local prices to see if there are any changes.
