New NTT DoCoMo phone: Man's best friend?

A new phone from Japan's NTT DoCoMo can disable itself when separated from its owner for too long.

Talk about a loyal handset! Japan's NTT DoCoMo has launched a new cell phone from Panasonic that can identify its owner via facial-recognition technology. It can also disable itself when separated from said owner for too long and, if lost, can be tracked through its onboard GPS.

The P903i comes with a wireless card, small enough to fit in a wallet or purse, that works as a security key by connecting with the mobile phone via Bluetooth, the Associated Press reports.

Consumers who lose their security cards can punch in a password to unlock the phone. But they will have to buy a new card to set the lock again, the article says. No word on what happens if people forget their passwords.
