biometric api

hi, i have an idea for a fingerprint app for the storm but i'm not sure if you all have a biometric api. if so could i use it to recognize owner's prints as a more secure way to lock their phone?

Re: biometric api

I am not aware of any Biometric API on any BlackBerry. I do not think the Storm touchscreen is capable of reading fingerprints.

Re: biometric api

5.0 introduced the "net.rim.device.api.biometrics" namespace. Not sure how to use though.
