Cell Phone as a Car Key?

Apparently Sharp has joined forced with Nissan in creating a cellphone that can act as a car key. Quite nice! I’m not sure if this picture I found on Artcatchr is the finalized product or not. But it’s still quite an interesting take on the whole cellphone and automobile industries. The cellphone is expected to hit the market in 2009. Take a look at the article in the mean time.

Almost all cellphones have bluetooth and only thing we need is an blue tooth receiver in the car and a simple micro system that decodes and authorizes the blue tooth signal from the phones.

What i am not understanding is why are they giving this petty things as the plus point to big things like new car. New car needs to be good by the virtue of its own goodness not because it has a cellphone key. And wait a minute, next time when you change the phone will you change the car too ?

Hmm, that’s a good point you pointed out. They didn’t say about that too. Perhaps the manufacturer is giving us either spare key or spare cellphone, haha.
