Willcom WX321J with finerprint scannerby Dhiram Shah
Here is the Willcom WX321J from Japan which is an average phone even by our standards, The candybar phone has an mediocre 1.3 Megapixel camera and a 2.4 inch display. It only has 2 MB of internal memory but thankfully there is a Micro SD card slot for memory cards upto 1GB. Other features include E-mail client, Java ver 2.0, games and standard business applications. The only thing unique about the phone is the advanced fingerprint scanner which instead of direct contact many a times succeptible to moisture, ink marks etc uses radio waves for authentication. So the phone recognizes you even on a hot summer day. Apart from security the fingerprint scanner can be used for menu navigation and web browsing, just glide your finger over the scanner and the cursor moves on the screen.
The Willcom WX321J will be available by February 07 in Japan.
