Think your phone's fancy just cause it has a touch-screen? If things go as planned, Sharp's future mobiles will have VGA touch-screens capable of reading your fingerprints. The new screens/readers (which were developed in Sharp's European labs) will each have embedded image sensors to give your mobile biometric security features. Sure, beats having to put your phone on lock all the time.
