Global Moto Maker; No Fingerprint Scanners for Motorola Devices?
One of the most engaging mobile hardware shopping experiences has got to be the custom configuration options by Motorola’s Moto Maker service. It allows users to experiment with different design elements. One thing that makes it so satisfying for users is that you’ll be able to see the results instantly!
It’s been around for quite some time already, alright. But it doesn’t seem that many people can fully take advantage of its features just yet. It’s firstly released in US and then followed by selected markets abroad. But honestly, you don’t see it anywhere.
During MWC, Rick Osterloh, Motorola’s President, has shared their future plans on the Moto Maker expansion and one technology feature that users won’t be seeing on the following Motorola devices that are under Rick Osterloh.
The update: users worldwide will be able to anticipate the Moto Maker’s availability, as it is set to expand globally soon. How soon? There were no words on that, but hopefully it doesn’t take too long before the interest towards it dies out.
The technology being said is on fingerprint scanners. Back in 2011, Motorola’s Atrix 4G was one of the early adapters of the technology. But now, they haven’t seen any chances that it will be used in their future devices. While Apple and Samsung are to include them in their latest devices, Motorola is shying away from it.
A reason for that is because of its inconsistent performance. Oesterloh also mentioned that there were no real time savings when using the fingerprint scanner as compared to using passwords or PIN-entry.
