    I've been thinking about this as well. There's an app in the market called Remote Wipe for root users. Its suppose to factory reset the phone and delete all data on the sdcard. Haven't tried it yet, but if it works it would be all we needed

    Mobile Defense for the non-rooted will lock the phone.

    Yea those apps do a decent job. But my fear is in the wrong hands someone might be able to crack it. A complete wipe of everything would be more reassuring. Although the deleted data could still be restored on the sdcard too with the right software, and the nandroid backup then restored. If remote wipe works it would be nice if the dev added data shredding as well. Bottom line, no matter what you do, a determined person could still access your data. Granted most won't be able to though.
