    My father had tried the Norton AntiVirus for his Treo and with only 5 definitions, he didnt use it.

    Its only a matter of time before Palm drops the ball, and I was just wondering your peoples opinions?

    Treos don't have bluetooth. Also...you have to "accept" the virus? If so, I would wager *most* Treo owners are a wee bit smarter than that.

    As far as the concept of a cellphone virus in general, my inital thought is that it is definitely inevitable, but I doubt the early ones will be a big deal because a cellphone (especially a PalmOS Smart Phone) is easily wiped out and restored (assuming you backup regularly), unlike a PC.
