GOTHENBURG, Sweden, October 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Fujitsu has announced six new mobile devices with several operators in Japan, using embedded swipe sensor technology from Fingerprint Cards ("FPC").

"Finger sensors in smart devices have become an increasingly essential way to ensure that these devices are secure and at the same time improve convenience and user experience for the user. Finger sensors in smartphones, and now also tablets, have become something of a trademark for Fujitsu.

"The Japanese market is renowned globally for its high quality and performance standards. Fujitsu and Japanese operators are the world's most experienced users of finger sensors. It gives me great pleasure to see six new mobile devices announced, so soon after the successful launch with Fujitsu in July. I am especially happy to see our technology being launched for the first time in a tablet PC, our next big market opportunity. This launch is another major milestone for FPC and evidence of FPC's world-leading position as technology supplier of capacitive fingerprint sensors with highest quality, best image quality and lowest power consumption."
