The company's leading anti-virus, F-Secure, not present at the Mobile World Congress, announced (as I had already paid in advance) the availability of the new version of its product for mobile devices: in particular for Smartphone Symbian S60, and arriving within a few days for the Windows Mobile. Specifically, versions have been released for 3rd edition and 5th edition of functionally almost identical.

However, are not equivalent, because in addition to feature anti-virus, malware, spyware and firewall, the version for S60 3rd edition includes a useful anti-theft is not in this for the 5th (the terminal touch screen like the Nokia 5800, N97, Samsung Omnia HD , etc.) and Windows Mobile. There will itemize all the features that you see on the official page.

A question naturally arises: is there really a need for antivirus on the new generation Smartphone? The answer, in our opinion, is so far no (at least for Symbian). It may be interesting to the firewall for greater protection when browsing or for more privacy on calls and messages. E 'can download a trial version for download from the Nokia terminals, or via the official website.
