The FIDO Alliance president Michael Barrett revealed to USA Today that Android Smartphones equipped with FIDO-based fingerprint readers should be widely available within the next six months? Are fingerprint readers about to become a common security norm in Smartphones? The trend, set by Apple with their iPhone 5S, has caught on like wildfire. Suddenly, everybody wants to make a device with a fingerprint reader built into it. Lenovo and LG, both members of the FIDO Alliance, are expected to first embrace this new technology. If all this pans out, this time next year we wouldn't have to type in an unlock code each time we unlock our device. Our finger should do the trick, eh?
