It seems at odds with new developments:

"Cell phone sensors detect radiation to thwart nuclear terrorism
Researchers at Purdue University are working with the state of Indiana to
develop a system that would use a network of cell phones to detect and track
radiation to help prevent terrorist attacks with radiological "dirty bombs"
and nuclear weapons.
Such a system could blanket the nation with millions of cell phones equipped
with radiation sensors able to detect even light residues of radioactive
material. Because cell phones already contain global positioning locators,
the network of phones would serve as a tracking system, said physics
professor Ephraim Fischbach. Fischbach is working with Jere Jenkins,
director of Purdue's radiation laboratories within the School of Nuclear
