It’s nice to see people playing nice together in the world of mobile. Notable examples include Microsoft and Nokia, and, uhm…
Joining that lengthy list are security guys Kaspersky and processor chaps Qualcomm, who’ve held a virtual (i.e. entirely-made-up-in-my-head) press conference to announce their undying love for each other. The good news is: the arrangement (which genuinely exists outside my brain) will benefit people buying Android phones with Snapdragon processors.
Yep, in future, wherever you find Android and Snapdragon, you’ll find a lovely slab of Kaspersky security preinstalled.
Looking on Google Play, it’d normally set you back £8.95 for the mobile version, or £11.95 for tablets. Can’t argue with that.
Shouting from inside a giant inflatable love-heart adorned with Kaspersky and Qualcomm logos, Chairman and CEO Eugene Kaspersky (honestly, I didn’t make that up) proclaimed: “In Kaspersky Lab, we have a solid number of global companies we work with, and Qualcomm Technologies will be one of the most important among them.
“We are looking forward to providing solutions to a wide range of device manufacturers, who are designing and/or building Snapdragon-enabled mobile devices or tablets running on Android.”
Qualcomm Snapdragon processors are found in a multitude of Android devices, far too many to list here. If I had to give one example, I’d say Jan’s favourite phone, the HTC ChaCha.
