Two new mobile POC viruses?

1: J2ME/RedBrowser.a: Seems to the first J2ME mobile phone trojan. It apparently works on most phones with J2ME support (ie. hundreds of different phones). It sends SMS messages to Russian premium rate numbers to steal money from the user. It was first reported by Kaspersky Lab.

2: www.mobileav.org is reporting a new C# virus, which would be succesful in spreading from the PocketPC mobile platform to a normal Win32 desktop computer. Nobody else has seen a sample of this one yet... strange.
