Is the phone-as-a-credit-card a good idea?

When somebody steals your credit card:

Hell, where's my credit card? They can drain my account! I'll phone immediately to my bank and block it!

When somebody steals your phone-as-a-credit-card:

Hell, where's my phone? They can drain my account! I'll phone... oh, FUCK!



PS I'm not demonizing the new feature from Android. Somebody will find it useful. I won't.

Depends on how safe is your phone. And it needs to be password protected and should be brickable (sp?) remotely.
Seems a good match for the BlackBerry, although the iPhone and Android have also been improving its security.
