Qiao Xing Mobile's (QXM) subsidiary CECT subsidiary has unveiled the T100, a mobile phone featuring fingerprint recognition and streaming TV.
"The mobile handset industry has rapidly expanded and diversified from voice-based communications to data-driven applications, and as a result, we believe handset security will start to become a significant concern," commented CECT Chairman Wu Zhi Yang. "We believe there is tremendous market potential for handsets with technological features that are designed to safeguard data on both the device and over the network. Consumers have started to regularly use mobile phones for email and instant messaging, but as wireless applications become more sophisticated and telecom networks continue to increase their data connection speeds, we think people are going to start using their handsets to conduct such wireless transactions as electronic banking, securities trading and internet shopping."
Qiao Xing manufactures and sells mobile handsets based primarily on GSM, and t operates its business primarily through CECT, its 93.4%-owned subsidiary in China.
"The fingerprint recognition scanner on our new T100 model will specifically ensure that such confidential data that is stored on handsets remains secure. This phone, which also offers a sleek design and ultra long battery life in standby mode, marks the latest product release for us that is designed with differentiated features that specifically cater to mid to high-end mobile phone users," Wu said.
