Earlier in the week we paid a visit to the folks at 7digital, who along with its native 7digital music downloads app for the Samsung Galaxy Tab, showed off its image recognition skills letting you scan in album covers and promo materials including posters. Read on to see it in action.

Of course, as we also mention in the week, this kind of thing has been done before, but it’s nice to see it working so efficiently on the Samsung Galaxy Tab, courtesy of its front-facing camera (this is something the iPad really should have been able to do to).

Check out the video below to see the service in action, grabbing album information within a second of taking snapping its cover in a magazine, letting you preview clips almost in an instant. It’ll work on bus shelter posters too, if you’re the sort to risk walking the streets with your Galaxy Tab.
