Android OS Get Norton Anti-Virus Protection

Symantec has released an anti-virus application that will offer Android users protection against virus, malware and even unwanted callers. The application is expected to be incorporated natively in Froyo though users may download it earlier that that.

The app shall be free to download and the users are offered 30 days of free service with respect to automatic updates. The service will need subscribers to upgrade to a paid plan after that. The subscription cost is unknown at the moment, though.

Here are some things we’ve learned the new Anti-Virus for Android OS can do

  • Scan malware/virus
  • Call screener to block unwanted callers
  • Remotely lock/wipe in case of theft

That goes much beyond conventional anti-virus softwares, doesn’t it?
