With the Developers Conference there is tons of info flying out the door. I just saw that the guys over at BlackBerry Cool have posted that the Storm will ship with a free 30-day trial of McAfee Mobile Security.
Huh? We know that McAfee may have been working on BlackBerry anti-theft applications, but this is the first concrete thing I have seen. I suppose it was only a matter of time before we saw viruses hit the BlackBerry environment, but I really was beginning to think that we were immune!
I suppose I have a couple of questions about this. How much is this anti-virus going to cost after the 30 day trial is up? Also, while Verizon customers typically purchase unlimited data plans, many other carriers make a lot of money off of people who go over their bandwidth. How much information will be streaming to your BlackBerry to update new virus definitions?
The whole thing just puts me on edge, please tell me that I am overreacting!
