***November 27, 2006* – Telecommunications manufacturer Oki Electric Industry Co. Ltd. announced today that the Japanese company is developing its Iris Recognition Technology to help secure Mobile Terminals.  With plans to be used with camera phones and PDAs, the commercial Iris Recognition Technology is scheduled to hit the market in March 2007. 

"Users will now be able to utilize their mobile terminals with security and peace of mind," said Oki General Manager of Business Incubation Division Teruo Iijima in today’s Oki press release.
