Cellphone with anti theft features

The Tianyu B832 looks like a boring dualband GSM handset, featuring a 2.4″ QVGA TFT display, a 2 megapixel camera that doubles up as a webcam, and a microSD card slot with MP3 playback. What sets it apart are the anti-theft features which would come in handy during emergencies. When the thief replaces your SIM card with his, the B832 will send an SMS bearing the thief’s number to you once you get a replacement SIM card from your operator. In addition, the phone can be locked down remotely from a computer once it is connected to a network. Pretty neat, huh? There is no word on the B832′s export, so you will have to head to China and Hong Kong if you want to pick up this $225 handset.
