It can also be used on smart phones running Microsoft’s Smartphone 2002 and Windows Mobile 2003 software. The release of Kaspersky's mobile security products is timely given that the first virus that spreads via Mobile Messaging Service (MMS) on Symbian-based smart phones was detected earlier this week, said Andrey Nikishin, head of market research and strategic development at Kaspersky. "Smart phones only represent 1% of the market now, but in two years it could be 50%, so the potential for danger is high," Nikishin said."</i><br /><br />It's starting to get really crowded in the Anti-Virus arena, and Windows Mobile Smartphone has yet to see a true virus. I guess it's always better to be prepared. Lets just hope we never need to use it. :wink:
