In the US and UK Xperia Z3 series smartphones and tablets will include AVG’s flagship AVG AntiVirus PRO for Android app, while those devices will launch in Australia this month.
They already boast key features like waterproof casing and PS4 compatibility, but Sony can now also tout a free 180 trial of AVG AntiVirus Pro.
Xperia users will receive a free 180 day trial of the AVG AntiVirus PRO for Android app, after which they can either purchase the annual subscription to keep the enhanced features or opt for the default 'AVG AntiVirus FREE'.
“The popularity of consumer apps, device proliferation and the bring-your-own-device trend in the workplace means we are spending more time on our connected devices and entrusting them with a broader range of personal and financial data. As a result, more people now expect to put in place security protection when they purchase a mobile device, whatever they plan to use it for,” said David Ferguson, General Manager Consumer & Mobile, AVG Technologies.
“AVG is already looking ahead to a future with AVG Zen where smart, connected devices in the home and personal devices like wearables could also be protected. With this vision of the Internet of Things starting to become a reality, people are confidently getting online through smartphones and tablets and providing AVG’s security apps will give Xperia device users peace of mind.”
AVG said its AntiVirus FREE for Android was the first mobile security application to exceed 100 million downloads on the Google Play Store. AVG's apps are available for download here.
Preorders for Sony's Z3 range are now open.
