AuthenTec has announced that its "Smart Sensor" technology has been integrated into the first 1GHz smartphone in the US, the LG eXpo. The LG eXpo is the first smartphone available in the US that makes use of the multiple features and functions of AuthenTec's AES1711 integrated input control solution.

The LG eXpo eliminates the need for pin codes and passwords with the exclusive "Smart Sensor" fingerprint recognition from AuthenTec, which achieves a new level of smart and personal security unlike any other mobile phone in the market. The Smart Sensor complements the touchscreen user interface of the eXpo by also providing precise cursor control for text editing, 4-way menu navigation, and AuthenTec's unique turbo-scroll feature for rapid browsing of long emails, contact lists or websites.

"This is the first time wireless subscribers in the US can experience the convenient security and personalization of an AuthenTec-enabled smartphone," said Art Stewart, AuthenTec Vice President of Mobile Systems. "We are pleased and proud to support AT&T and LG in the launch of the innovative and feature-packed LG eXpo and strongly believe that it will help open the door for additional smart sensor-equipped phones in North America as well as Europe and the rest of the world."

Featuring the first 1 GHz processor in the United States, the LG eXpo allows business professionals to meet their demanding data sharing needs while on the go. The LG eXpo is loaded with Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional, to help power users stay more connected with email, calendar and Microsoft Office Mobile. The phone's optional LG mobile projector accessory allows users to display Web pages, documents, photos and videos anywhere, any time and share them with anyone.

AuthenTec is an ISO9001-certified provider of fingerprint sensors and solutions with the broadest product and IP portfolio in the silicon fingerprint sensor industry. The Company recently expanded its offering to include new smart sensor hardware, software and client applications for consumer PCs, netbooks and smartphones.
