HP iPAQ Pocket PC h5450

In November 2002, HP released the iPAQ h5450, featuring the FingerChip AT77C101. This was the very first PDA with a built-in fingerprint sensor.

There were many reviews about this product on the Web... Here are two papers about it:

  • Biometrics for Large-scale Consumer Products (well, my paper :)
  • biometric security with the iPAQ Pocket PC h5400 series white paper January 2003
  • Cogent software logon


    The Cogent bioengine performed the fingerprint recognition.

    Some other software have used the FingerChip like Utimaco SafeGuard.

  • (May 2004) Expedition 9 brought two iPAQ h5550 on the International Space Station. The FingerChip is the first fingerprint sensor to go in space! See the iPAQ with Expedition 12.

    HP iPAQ Pocket PC h5550

    In 2003, HP released the h5550: similar to the h5450, the processor was upgraded as well as the RAM.

    The iPAQ H5550 was also the base of the Tactical Communication D-DACT device, but the fingerprint sensor seems not having been used.
