Symantec has detailed plans to reach out beyond its PC software, and mobile devices will be the next stop. Norton Smartphone Security will be a beta download available for Android devices in June 2010. The software will allow remote locks or wiping, as well as Norton's antimalware software. The software will also block unwanted calls. Beyond security, Symantec will offer Norton Connect as a beta for iPhone OS devices and Android phones. Norton Connect can access files stored on Symantec's Norton Online Backup or Norton 360. To help bring these products to market, Symantec has joined the HTC MobilityNow program.
