    They showed the iPhone being wiped in the March reveal of the SDK. Have a look back at that keynote to see it in action.

    Not that exciting though - just pops up with a progress bar as it wipes.

    That would be so awesome of when you wiped your iPhone it came up in large stencil text saying "FAIL" So if someone stole your iPhone, as they were using it it just suddenly stopped working and flashed the word FAIL on the screen and immediately died. :D

    My question is does remote wipe brick the device or just erase all the data (mail, contact, etc)?

    on the xda it factory reset the phone.

    With regards to the touch this is an over the air (celular) wipe and as the touch is not a celular device I cannot see how this would be possable as it needs to be connected to the ms exchange server

    So the remote wipe feature doesn't disable the phone portion. Well that kinda stinks. You would think that it would give the option of bricking the phone and locking it so that it can't be used for much of anything.

    just found this
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/business/business-resources/wm5-exchange2003.mspx

    Remote reset of device data helps to protect your business information. An unauthorized user might try to log in to your lost or stolen device, but it's protected against that too.

    Remote wipe is activated when device attempts to sync with the network.

    Once the Admin sends remote erase order to the specific device, the server sends the order to the device. When it is synced, the order is carried out.

    Administer through a Web site or delegated to a helpdesk.

    Device is locked and data stored on the internal memory is erased after five incorrect password tries.

    Device is still available for emergency calls.

    Good find. So it should disable the phone portion (well except emergency calls). That is good.
