There were rumors before that RIM was working on a fingerprint reader for BlackBerrys. It all seems to make sense since RIM is very bullish about security with their enterprise product. It is kind of surprising that they don’t already have a fingerprint scanner.
Well one of our readers, Terrence, pointed out that he was digging through the resources in BlackBerry OS 6 on a 9800 and found a file titled: "net_rim_theme_precision_2_360x400_b.cod". This finding was also confirmed by BBLeaks so it looks legit!
Could be that RIM is serious about coming out with a fingerprint scanner? I know some users who would gladly have one over having to enter in a 5+ character password on work devices.
PS: Sorry for not posting this earlier guys we have just been overloaded with BlackBerry 6 and Torch news.
