IIRC there's a nice scene, on the movie "2012", where a russian billionaire takes a call on his iPhone and uses his fingerprint on the screen in order to actually take the call... youtube/google can't help me find that scene but I'm pretty sure that (IF I remembered it correctly) it was a prediction of the future :D

My HP Probook 4540S got fingerprint sensor and I love it.
I'm interested see how it works.
Hope Future Xperia got something like this ;)

Great! So now thieves will also be cutting your finger off while they steal your iPhone!
