Toyota to release cellphone

It may not be in the same league as Vertu's Racetrack Legends series, but Toyota is reportedly preparing to launch its own cell-phone. The handset is being developed for the Japanese market together with KDDI, the telecom company of which Toyota controls 11%. The phone will be built by Toshiba and feature Bluetooth integration with car systems including satellite navigation and emergency assistance.
