Sagem plans fingerprint security on new Android devices

Sagem WirelessSagem Wireless has formed a partnership with fingerprint authentication company UPEK to put fingerprint identity capabilities on a range of new Sagem devices later this year, including new Android-based handsets.

The new devices would enable users to identify themselves by 'swiping' a finger, avoiding the need to enter usernames and account numbers when accessing mobile banking and online shopping sites.

Jerome Nadel, Executive vice president of marketing and user experience at Sagem Wireless, said "The emergence of new connected lifestyle devices is changing the way users interact with and consume mobile services. Both security and usability are critical to reducing perceptions of risk, improving convenience, and encouraging usage.  Biometric solutions such as fingerprint sensors simplify the process of user identification, providing faster and more secure access to personalised services and transactions."

There's no news yet about specific release dates or markets.
