Sprint today announced a partnership with McAfee in order to provide its customers with another option to protect their smartphones and tablet devices. The companies are promoting two different security services. The first is called McAfee Mobile Security, which is a security suite that includes features such as locate and track lost/stolen phones, contact backup, remote wipe, remote lock, audible alarms, and protection from phishing and malware attacks. It costs $29.99 per year. The other product is called McAfee Family Protection Android Edition. This software is meant for parents to install on their children's devices in order to filter content, lock down the browser, and protect against uninstalls. It costs $19.99 per year. Malware is increasingly targeting smartphone platforms and Sprint wants to make sure its customers are protected. Smartphone users are also free to scout out their own security options in the Android Market.

Ha ha, nope, no for the WP7 powered HTC Arrive

No for the WP7 powered HTC Arrive, I guess. It has been months since it came out and Sprint barely has Sprint braded apps for it. I doubt the Arrive is getting this security stuff even though it is a very decent smartphone on Sprint lineup.
