Fujitsu F-01A Waterproof Fingerprint Secure Mobile Phone

fujitsu-f-01aTake no phones into the shower?

How about this little folder?

No need to miss that call – just grab the Fujitsu Japan the F-01A and a loofah!

The F-01A is apparently the world’s first mobile phone that’s waterproof – and also has a fingerprint biometric security thingy.

In Nippon, it’s part of the line-up of NTT DoCoMo, the country’s biggest telecommunications company.

The fingerprint technology is developed by AuthenTec, a provider of fingerprint sensors and solutions.

The Symbian-based F-01A comes with a 3.2-inch VGA touchscreen display, a 5.2-Mpixel camera with autofocus, GPS with Google Street View images, a One-Seg digital TV tuner, an e-wallet function and microSDTM/microSDH slots.

Forget showers – you can apparently take this thing underwater for about 30 minutes up to 1 meter deep.

The Fujitsu phone is already on sale in Japan where it’s available as part of DoCoMo’s PRIME series since November last year.

But  AuthenTec has only just made the collaboration with Fujitsu official.
