Froyo new Features : Remote security



Remember how 2.2 voice action hit the third-party Vlingo so hard that it has to alter the price to free in order to compensate? Well, I think this is what happening right now, except with remote security. Now, Google is offering  a features that third-party apps already offer, remote security. Those features will include the ability to remotely wipe data on lost or stolen devices, lock idle devices after a period of inactivity, and to require a password on each phone. The minimum length of each password will be able to be set by policy and the passwords can be required to have numbers and letters.  This would certainly broadened the appeal of Froyo as it is natively already has remote security. But I can't help but to wonder the fate of third-party apps like SecureWave and others? Would they stay or crumble in the android market?
