Actually Apple is working on a device (iPhone) that's disables hand held use based on an algorithm that uses speed, g-force and other physics. You either have to have a Bluetooth headset or a vehicle with Bluetooth in order to use the phone. To use the map, you need to key in the destination before you start driving, once you start moving, the ability to type is disabled.
Other manufactures are working similar technology that forces you to use voice to text while driving.
Yes I am employed by a major wireless company. ;)
Looking forward to the end of Apple... they had a good run while it lasted.
