According to sources, the AVG AntiVirus Pro app is available for download for existing users of Xperia that runs Android 2.3.3 or later.

Here are the words from the General Manager Consumer & Mobile of AVG:

"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. 

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."
