Tcool, 11 Apr 2014It is a tablet not a phone. Don't mix. It doesn't have a calling function. Except that they did all Pocket PCs back in the day had calling facility. They tried throwing everything they could on those devices. They could even dual boot.

Mobilemaster, 10 Apr 2014Fujitsu was the first at making a device with fingerprint sensor.Can you state the name of the device or a link with the date it was released please ?
Tcool, 10 Apr 2014No evidence means not true.
Can you prove your claim?
Easy to say but hard to justify.HTC Shift under the the features section there is stated that it has a fingerprint scanner. This goes back in the day when Microsoft was trying too hard to set a foothold on the "mobile smartphone/tablet market ". This was called like many others back in the day a "Pocket PC" but basically it is almost the size of the Nexus 7 with a mobile 32 bit version of Vista.
As for the Touch ID this is an article on 27th of July by "The Telegraph" in 27 July 2012. You can read on the article the date and or days Apple buys AuthenTec biometrics company.
PS : The first link sends you to gsmarena the second is to the Telegraph both are legit news sites so don't worry.
As a software developer i will go for a platform with better api's and support for consumers so it is a no go for me . I'll save my money for now and wait for nokia to release windows phone 8.1 device. Because it has cortana. And future of computing is natural user interface.

IApple actually had bought a company that worked on biometrics1 year and a half before they released Touch ID probably because they were serious about it. If that was the case HTC should have done that since theyy came up with that long before them with HTC Shift and they were similar sensors. I am saying that is obvious where they got the hint and everybody knows that
Well if you need to namecall to regain your confidence that your brand of choice is the best and free yourself of your insecurities by namecalling others go on I would say have your share of trying to feel better
