SnapOne has announced the availability of its Russian language version of Data Safe, for feature phone subscribers in Russia. SnapOne initially partnered in Russia with Beeline to build Data Safe for Android devices and has now expanded the offering to include Java ME and Nokia S60 feature phones.
The company estimates that over half of mobile phone users in Russia use a feature phone, like the Java ME and Nokia S60 devices.
"Feature phones are very popular in Russia and we are excited to offer their users this level of mobile protection," said Jiren Parikh, president and CEO of SnapOne, Inc. "Plus, by expanding our service to feature phones, we're learning even more about the country's mobile-security threats and will continue to use the information to tailor our services."
Data Safe is a cloud-service application that provides a broad range of protection and security for Android devices, and now feature phones. It allows users to back up and restore their contacts, calendars and notification lists. Nokia S60 users can also remotely locate their device on a map or with a loud audible sound, as well as lock and wipe their device in the event that the phone is stolen or lost.
Upcoming features include the ability to back up photo libraries.
The app will be marketed as a co-branded product and is available for download by Beeline subscribers.
