The Lenovo P960 is quickly becoming a mobile phone destined to be used by a whole bunch of weirdos. As well as offering that all essential mobile phone component – biometric fingerprint scanning, it will also have an automatic record function that records any phone calls from a particular number. I’m sure it will have genuine uses, and may make the ideal mobile phone for parents that are loathed to otherwise let their children have one.
The problem with that theory is that the design is a little blande, although not entirely unpleasant in all honesty. It leaves a huge question mark as to who exactly the finger print security and automated call recording is geared at.
There’s very few mobile phones that currently use fingerprint scanning security, although the technology does exist. Laptops are featuring biometric scanning more and more regularly to mixed reviews. The VIP Record feature, as Lenovo describes it, is certainly unique and most definitely handy… to somebody… probably.
The press release doesn’t give much more information and certainly no pricing details so if you’re interested then please let us know why, and keep your eyes peeled for more news.
