BlackBerry Storm to come with McAfee Mobile Security?


mcafee mobile security for the BlackBerry Storm

It’s late, I’ve pretty much just touched down in beautiful Santa Clara, so please don’t blame me (too much) if this has been written about before. However, upon hitting the tarmac, one of the emails hitting my inbox contained this image indicating that the Verizon BlackBerry Storm will come with a free 30-day trial of McAfee Mobile Security. McAfee Mobile Security does what you’d expect, scanning files, messages and downloads to makes sure they’re virus free.

Thoughts people? The thought of downloading a virus to your BlackBerry is fairly new to me, so I’m wondering if this is necessary.

Thanks for the tip, Kevin!
