[ubuntu-uk] Mobiles and Bluetooth Authentication

Hey everyone,

I'm in the process of trying to select a new phone and figured that
what would be really cool is one that I can use to login and out of my
machine. Basically something that communicates through bluetooth to
the machine to log in. Then when I go away it should lock it and when
I come back it should unlock it.

I am pretty sure that all of this can be achieved on Windows with
third party software and was wondering if I could do the same on
Ubuntu. I'm interested in what software I'll need on my system, what
mobile phone and software for that I'll need and whether it's also
compatible with Windows (so that I can use it for both OSes I use).

Any help is much appreciated,
