Come on. Anything the Storm can do, the iPhone can do better and did it a long time ago.

From a google search of "iphone remote control car"

RC car, the Storm drove an F1 car. Did you finish the video? Lewis Hamilton drove his F1 car with the phone

I didn't get that far, but come on, you can't really believe that. It's just a commercial for Vodaphone. Do you really think they would let someone drive a hundreds of millions of dollar car with a phone.

Not to mention, I don't think Bluetooth would work that far away.

i agree. bluetooth is typically 30ft or less.

nor would McLaren put that kind of money in to the hands of a phone manufacturer. It's obviously possible, but totally faked in that video.
