NTT DOCOMO is now offering subscribers the world's first fingerprint-enabled waterproof cell phone, the Fujitsu F-01A.
This feature-rich phone is the first to use a fingerprint sensor using AuthenTec?s new TouchStone packaging. In security, the phone incorporates AuthenTec?s TrueNav technology for touchpad-like navigational control via AuthenTec?s AES1711 fingerprint sensor.
The F-01A is based on a Symbian operating system and features a 3.5-inch widescreen VGA touchscreen display, 5.2 megapixel camera with Autofocus, built-in GPS using Mobile Google Maps with Street View, e-Wallet mobile payment capability, and a 1Seg mobile TV tuner.
Fujitsu?s F-01A waterproof cell phone meets IPX5 and IPX7 specifications, making it capable of submersion in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes.
AuthenTec?s AES1711 low power, small form factor sensor for the wireless market is based on TruePrint technology, AuthenTec's patented and unique solution that reads below the surface of the skin to the live layer where a person's true fingerprint resides. This patented subsurface approach enables AuthenTec sensors to read virtually every fingerprint. The sensor also combines AuthenTec?s TrueNav menu navigation features, TrueFinger anti-spoofing security, and TrueMatch pattern matching.
