I’ve no information on licensing at the moment, but I imagine it would be similar to the licensing for ESET’s existing products in the mobile sector.

I am sure our product managers are considering it, but so far I have not heard of any plans.

Now that ESET is on Windows Mobile and beta testing Symbian, does ESET see itself protecting Andriod users in the future with a mobile antivirus application or is the Andriod API's limiting this type of service?

This makes me think that we need the ability to audit the code for such apps. I don’t yet own a smartphone but the Android is on the agenda in the near future, despite these concerns. As a security guy I’ll be careful, but I think we’ll see a lot more security problems with these and future handhelds being 0wned by malware or other attacks to make money for the usual array of sewage-spewing crooks.

Our desktop product does detect some malicious android apps, but typically an Android user ins’t getting their apps form the desktop.

It would be a great feature of Mobile Eset.
