took a little bit longer but this
was known already. However, now Symantec finally announced the launch of its
previously announced Norton Smartphone Security, a mobile security suite to
provide a solution for both Windows Mobile and Symbian OS smartphones.
The product is said to offer Norton antivirus technology as well as a firewall
and antispam for SMS. While SMS antispam blocks text and multimedia messages
from unknown senders, the firewall controls both inbound and outbound network
traffic on the smartphone
Norton Smartphone Security supports devices running either Windows Mobile 5.0
or 6 as well as Symbian S60 v3 and UIQ 3.0 smartphones. It's now available as a
subscription-based offering and retails for US$ 29.99.
