The Willcom WX310J – phone with the security of fingerprints
Japanese Radio has made a new phone targeted at security conscious business users. The WX310J, which will be available for Japanese provider Willcom’s subscribers, is built around the fingerprint scanner in the center of the phone which will protect the use and contents of the phone from malicious users. You can even use the phone to secure your computer. You can plug it in to your machine and lock up the desktop so that it can only be accessed once your fingerprint has been authenticated. If you do that, though, you definitely wouldn’t want to lose your phone.
The phone will support POP3 and SMTP e-mail servers and J2MR application. It has a miniSD slot for extra memory. It doesn’t have a camera or anything playful – this thing is all business.
The phone measures in at 119 x 53 x 16.5 mm, but it looks bigger because of the tiny buttons. It weighs 113 grams. You can have one for $220, but you have to move to Japan first.
