Blackberry Protect and remote wipe of mobile phones

What would happen if you suddenly lost your phone?  Does your phone auto lock with a PIN?  Can you wipe the data?  Can you remotely locate it?

RIM has just released Blackberry Protect for free to all North American users via the Blackbery App World.  You can use Blackberry Protect to locate, remotely lock, or wipe data from your Blackberry device if it is lost or stolen.  We recommend this software to all blackberry customers that are not running Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES).

Android and Windows Mobile devices can use Lookout Mobile Security which provides similar features.

Your phone has highly valuable personal information.  Grab some piece of mind now by installing one of these utilities on your phone.
