Orange has launched the world’s first smartphone with fingerprint security, the Motorola Atrix, in an exclusive deal with the US manufacturer.
The Andriod-powered device will be available on the Orange network from today (4 May).
The Atrix is the world’s first smartphone to have an in-built biometric fingerprint reader which allows consumers to unlock the phone with the swipe of a finger, ensuring unrivalled handset security.
Orange UK head of device portfolio Nicola Shenton said: ‘This really is the ultimate smartphone for gadget fans packed full of tech wizardry and features that any aspiring spy would be proud of.
‘With its multimedia accessories and groundbreaking fingerprint swipe access, this is an innovative handset that Orange is proud to be bringing to the UK first.’
The handset also features a powerful dual core processor, a 4 inch LCD display and a 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus.
Spymaster Director Jeremy Marks said: ‘Biometric fingerprint security is the best way to protect your device. This type of technology offers consumers a new level of security surpassing anything we have seen before on a smartphone.’
Orange customers will be able to get the Motorola Atrix free on a £35 per month, 24 month contract which includes 600 minutes, unlimited texts and unlimited Wi-Fi.
