Video: Nokia E7 Multitasking and F-Secure (with remote wipe for stolen/lost devices)

uptodateksa2 gives us another E7 hands on showing multitasking and F-Secure from Ovi Store.

As well as being an antivirus for your phone, it will also allow you to remotely wipe content from your phone if it’s lost or stolen.
