It does have an auto focus.

Although Barcode scanner may not be coded to make use of the minis auto-focus :)

pulse's mini autofocus is kinda funny. no autofocusing in barcode scans and auto-autofocuses in camera shoot mode ... wish i can turn it off, not too annoying at day, but at night its like a damn disco club -.-

Yes. it does have autofocus.

It makes a clicky noise.

It works with Google Goggles, Google Shopper etc.

It does seem to work for me on the camera application.

with camera application, do u see some strange behavior of auto-focus feature. my pulse mini auto focuses if i shake it arround and not pressing the camera side key nor the touch screen button. with LED flash set to auto it tryes to autofocus every time i move the phone, like autofocus depends on G-Sensor. if u dont get what i mean ill record a video, mut im 99% sure it shouldnt work like that.

again, simple scenario: go to camera app, set LED flash to auto. while holding the phone still in place wont happen anything and it will autofocus on pressin button. but if u move the phone from close object to, lets say 1.5m far object it autofocuses without pressin anybutton. also. if i stay at same object and not move the phone at all it wont autofocus on it (only if u press shoot key, both hardware and from touch screen). but if u shake the phone it will autofocus.

i dont know if this is right, but so far it seems too odd to be retail rom behaviour (maybe hardware problem). so i ask u users on pulse mini to explain ur exiriance with camera app. thx alot

Yes, it does seem odd... mine likes to click a lot when using the camera..

I guess this is autofocus.

Maybe shaking it causes it to need to refocus as the hardware is adjusted by the shakng in someway?
