HTC One Max fingerprint phablet unveiled early

The HTC One Max’s inclusion of a fingerprint scanner makes it set to be the first Android handset to go on sale with the facility in the UK since Apple’s launch of the iPhone 5S in September, which included a similar component. HTC said the One Max would begin its roll-out later this month. “The fingerprint scanner allows users to lock or unlock the screen and quickly launch up to three favourite applications by assigning an individual finger to each,” HTC said in a statement. This raises the same identity concerns people stated with the new iPhone 5s and makes you wonder if more companies will follow suit with fingerprint scanners.
