Industry analysts predict that due to the rising popularity of data-centric mobile phones and PDAs, these devices will become an attractive target for virus writers.

TrendLabs, Trend Micro's global network of antivirus research centers, identified in 2004 a number of proof-of-concept viruses for mobile phones, such as SYMBOS_SKULLS.A (a Trojan which targets Series 60 phones with the Symbian operating system, particularly Nokia 7610 models) and SYMBOS_CABIR.A (a worm which spreads through BLUETOOTH-enabled Series 60 phones); it is likely that further attacks on such devices will occur in the future.

With the arrival of the holiday season, many people will be purchasing or receiving new handhelds as gifts. With this in mind, Trend Micro is offering its customers a holiday gift, by providing this first edition of Trend Micro Mobile Security free of charge until June 2005.
