Fingerprint recognition: New tools for cellphone security

TMCNet has reported that Qiao Xing Mobile, a Chinese manufacturer has introduced their most innovative handset to date, T100. The most important feature, besides ultra long standby, multimedia features such as streaming TV, is its fingerprint recognition feature.

"...we think people are going to start using their handsets to conduct such wireless transactions as electronic banking, securities trading and Internet shopping. The fingerprint recognition scanner on our new T100 model will specifically ensure that such confidential data that is stored on handsets remains secure," said CECT Chairman Wu Zhi Yang."
Fingerprint recognition in cellphones is not a new concept in advanced cellphones anymore. Many cellphones of manufacturers like Pantech, LG etc have been offering them for quite some time now.
