Spybot Search and Destroy...For Mobile?

I am a big fan of Spybot Search and Destroy. This little freeware wonder has saved my butt a few times, and has even helped me make a buck or two. When I used to do home and small business IT consulting, 90% of my business was spyware and virus removal. Often times all I had to do was install Spybot on a home users PC and run it for a quick buck. Or I would burn it, along with some other free tools, and give it away as a "Bauer-Power Consultation Security Pack" for marketing purposes.

Anyhoo, getting back on track, on Friday I was on the SpyBot website and noticed that they had versions of Spybot for Windows Mobile, Pocket PC, and Symbian devices. I didn't realize that spyware on mobile devices was that big of an issue requiring an Antispyware. Actually, I guess it isn't. According to the Spybot site, most malware for these devices is proof on concept right now, but it doesn't hurt to be prepared for the future.
