A third software that Symantec is announcing today–in addition to Norton DNS and Norton Mobile Security–is called Norton Mobile Utilities. Norton Mobile Utilities is a set of tools that will allow Android smartphone owners to manage their mobile usage and track minutes, SMS messages, and data use on their devices to stay within their plan caps. With the end of unlimited plans on AT&T in favor of a metered data pricing plan schedule, Norton Mobile Utilities will help users monitor how many minutes and how much data they have consumed thus far in their billing cycle. The software will also help users manage applications as well.
To use Norton Mobile Utilities, users will need an Android handset running at least Android 2.0 or better. The software is available as a free beta download direct from Android Market.
