i mate Ultimate 8150 Review

The shape and the size of the phone are the same as of 6150 or in other words, it is massive and unattractive. Actually, there are only two differences between them. Firstly, the touch display is smaller (2.6“), but still has a VGA resolution and offers better-saturated and clear colors. Unfortunately, its also that hard to use in direct sunlight.
The second difference is the presence of a numeric keypad. Its buttons and the navigational ones as well are large but without a clearly expressed relief, which makes them hard to use. Besides, they are back lit in a very intrusive and tiring the eyes blue color. The joystick almost doesn’t stick out above the other buttons and is extremely inconvenient.
On the left side, we see the 3-way button-wheel, which is easier to use and is our preferred method of navigation. This side houses also OK button, which in contrast to its twin located on the front panel is activated when pressed once, cannot be used as “delete” and is hard to push. Also here, we see the microSD slot, the shortcut to the Wireless manager and below them, the hardware restart button, accessible only with a stylus.
On the opposite side is located the VGA cable slot, used for a monitor or projector connection. It is protected with a rubber cap, which is very hard to open. Next to it are the miniUSB connector and the small, hard to press camera key.” Read more here:

Lenovo P960 cell phone with fingerprint scanner announced

Atrua Technologies announced today that Lenovo Mobile (www.lenovomobile.com), one of Chinas leading makers of mobile devices, selected Atruas made-for-mobile fingerprint solution for Lenovos recently launched P960 mobile phone Lenovos first commercial mobile phone to incorporate fingerprint biometrics. Lenovo, a leader in the adoption of fingerprint sensors, selected Atruas solution for its superior fingerprint recognition accuracy and compatibility with the mobile phone. We evaluated a number of potential fingerprint solutions for this project, and found that Atrua delivered the superior combination of features and performance for mobile phones, stated Paul Wu, General Manager of Lenovo Mobiles Product Department. Atruas made-for-mobile fingerprint touch control utilizes the companys own unique adaptive capacitance and neural matching technology, developed from the outset for mobile applications. The technology accurately recognizes fingerprints while consuming only a fraction of the power to image a fingerprint as compared with competing solutions that derive from technology developed primarily for PC applications. Atruas fingerprint solution also consumes less memory and processor resource and takes up less area on the phone than competing offerings. Because of the Atrua sensor’s small size, we were able to fit it conveniently on the edge of the P960, said Mr. Wu.
With fingerprint recognition now common in laptop PCs, the capability has been increasingly finding its way into mobile phones. Atruas fingerprint touch controls deliver all the benefits of fingerprint sensors found in laptops, and more. Studies have shown that mobile phones are frequently lost or stolen and many users are concerned about compromising the private and valuable data on their phones. Since typing passwords is even more cumbersome on phones than it is on PCs, the convenience of never having to re-type passwords is all-the-more appealing to phone users. In addition, Lenovos P960 has an innovative VIP recording feature that automatically records calls from designated numbers. The fingerprint biometric technology is used in the P960 to protect sensitive data such as VIP recordings, text messages, call history, and address book information.
“We are pleased to see a recognized leader in fingerprint for laptops adopt our technology for their mobile phone and we are delighted to have the opportunity to support such a leading global manufacturer in their ongoing effort to bring greater levels of security and convenience to users of mobile devices,” commented Anthony Gioeli, CEO of Atrua.
