The Android team took to the official blog today to announce a feature that all Android users need, whether they want to admit it or not. If your Android device gets lost/misplaced, you can now use Android Device Manager to locate its exact position or you can “ring” your device. If your phone has been stolen, you can also use the service to remotely wipe your device, ensuring that your info and its private contents are safe.
The service will go live later this month, and be available for devices running Android 2.2+. A separate Device Manager application will go live at the same time, so stay tuned for when that will happen.
This is great news.
