Considering that there have no been any BlackBerry specific viruses created yet, I think I may wait a little while to buy a product that might not actually do anything for me. I wonder what type of downloads it might "detect".

I was wondering the same thing. I suppose I could add it to my evergrowing library of unused apps.

The developer claims it is useful because it can prevent you from becoming a virus vector and will stop you from passing on a virus; for example forwarding an email with a Word attachment infected with a worm.

Seems to be an application in search of an application

Futhermore, why does it only work on the 7100 series?

Are you involved with these guys?
