Fingerprint Phone From Motorola: ATRIX Security

By Posted 7 May 2011, 08:33

The Motorola ATRIX is more widely known as the fingerprint phone, as the handset uses bio-metric fingerprint technology to increase security if it gets stolen. The smartphone has been available in the U.S. for some time, but now consumers in the UK can now get their hands on the device through the Orange network.

The only way that the phone can be unlocked is by your fingerprint, so you will need to swipe your finger across the reader – how awesome is that? OK, this feature has been used on computers for some time now, but it makes more sense to have it on a device that stands more chance of getting stolen.

The Motorola ATRIX has some impressive hardware to match, such as a 1 GHz dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, 5-megapixel camera, HD video, 4-inch touchscreen display, HD TV, 16GB of storage and much more. On launch the ATRIX will come with Android Froyo, but will not be long until upgraded to Gingerbread 2.3.

As with all handsets on the Orange UK network there are a number of monthly price plans to choose, the more you pay each month, the cheaper the handset will be. The price ranges are FREE, £49.99, £99.99 and £149.99. For more details visit Orange UK.

Will you be buying the Motorola ATRIX for the specs or the bio-metric fingerprint technology?
