Why not using this one :


I like the idea of drawing a 'Z' anywhere on the screen. Comparing to a 
sliding-cursor unlock tool, I see many advantages :
  - no need to look at the screen. The 'Z' can be drawn everywhere on 
the screen whereas one need to aim the cursor in the other lock tool
  - it's AFAIK different from the unlock systems used on others phones, 
particuliary the Iphone (which uses a sliding cursor to unlock). Being 
different is an advantage : I don't want my FR to have an interface look 
and feel duplicated from the Iphone's one. Taking good ideas from the 
others is good, but not looking for being a clone (a clone will never be 
as good as the cloned model).

My 2 cents...
