Open Contacts
Tap on the Business card icon
Take a photo of the card. Try it without flash in a well lit room for best results.
Check the details
Tap on Save

Thanks to The Daily Note II/3 - Samsung Galaxy Note 2 & Note 3 Daily Videos for pointing this out for us.
That is awesome. As someone that seems to be flypaper for business cards, this would be a godsend.

You know, as much as I dislike Samsung for the region lock fiasco (let's not discuss that in this thread please) and my averment that I wasn't going to buy a Note 3 to replace my SGS2, I keep finding myself back in these forums...

I think it's time to bite the bullet and get one.
