AVG presents Mobilation, an antivirus app for Android tablets
AVG, a well-known antivirus maker, has released an app that aims to guarantee the security of your Android tablet.

Called AVG Mobilation, this antivirus program scans your tab for malware - apps, files and even settings are checked. Moreover, if your tablet gets lost or stolen, AVG Mobilation can locate it and even wipe its content using cloud based security technology, so your personal privacy is not compromised.

The antivirus app backs-up contacts, call logs, bookmarks, messages and installed applications to an SD card, so you don't lose any valuable information if something happens with your tab. You also have the "app locker" option that allows you to put a password on any application.

The app is already available in the Android Market, so you can check it if you are interested.

Because smartphone security is becoming such a hot topic lately, we are preparing an article on the subject, which will be released in the coming days, so stay tuned!

Sure they do. . . they slow down your computer ;)

The only thing an antivirus app is good for is to scan a file, app, or something else you have downloaded from a source you don't trust. To let these things run continuously on your device is generally a complete waste of resources.

People say Windows is so bad. . . blah, blah, blah. . . Well, if you *set your computer up properly* and aren't an idiot that clicks obvious malicious links you don't need antivirus running, and you won't get infected--I've never had a single problem for over 15 years.

Wrong. The current antivirus are known to conflict with other android app and will cause the device to randomly act on it's own, freeze, etc. I would install it, run it, then uninstall. Good idea, but right now, it's causing more issues than it's preventing.
