Nokia mobile phones get encryption
Nokia plans to work with Swedish security company Pointsec Mobile Technologies to develop an encryption tool for high-end phones, the companies said on Tuesday.
The tool will be available for Nokia's Series 60 and Series 80 devices. The software, Pointsec for Symbian OS, will be available in the third quarter through Pointsec resellers and system integrators. The first phone for which the software will be available is the Nokia 9500 Communicator.
The security tool will protect data such as email, text and multimedia messages, calendar and address book entries, and information stored on memory cards.
