FNM's Spotlight Article on Today's Biometrics Technology: As the technology world buzzes with speculation that the next iPhone will have a fingerprint reader, makers of biometric security devices are bracing for a race among smartphone makers to adopt the technology. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) will unveil a new iPhone next month, according to a person familiar with the plans. ABI Research and KGI Securities Co. are among the industry watchers that say the device will include a fingerprint reader, a prediction bolstered by Apple's $350 million purchase of fingerprint- sensor maker AuthenTec Inc. last year. "Apple is giving a strong indication that market leaders see biometrics as part of their roadmap," said Thomas Marschall, chief executive officer of Precise Biometrics AB (Stockholm: PREC), a maker of authentication equipment such as fingerprint sensors in Lund, Sweden. "All competitors are looking for alternatives to match Apple -- it's the kickoff of a rally in the industry." Mobile-device makers are turning to biometrics to make smartphones more secure and quicker for making payments and accessing files, music and video through so-called cloud services. An Apple embrace of fingerprint sensors could give the technology a lift, much like the boost touch screens got after the iPhone's introduction in 2007. Device makers started paying attention to biometrics, which can replace passwords and signatures, after the AuthenTec acquisition, Marschall said.
