Today NTT DoCoMo and technology partners Sharp and Nissan rolled out the first mobile phone that has an integrated Intelligent Key in it. The Intelligent Key can be used to unlock a car, and also to start the engine. Nissan has already built a number of cars that can use the Intelligent Key system. The technology will be on display this year, and the companies involved hope to have commercial distribution starting in 2009.

Stolen Phone = Stolen car

Great idea but I see this being not so good. Now people will really have to start using the phone lock feature on their phones.
Not a problem if you report your phone stolen, especially if you report the IMEI #, so the carrier can disable the phone.

I love Nissan's intelligent keys. It does suck if someone steals your phone they've got your car, but I've had both fall out of my pocket. At least it beats the $400.00 it costs to have a new iKey made.
