    I would be interested to see demand figures for phones with biometric security. So far, it looks like there is traction in specific markets outside of the United States. I am of the opinion that until one of the major players like Blackberry or Apple’s iPhone make a credible biometric offering this will still be a very niche play. Best of luck and will try to follow how it goes.
