    I think most people talk good about Lookout, I personally don't see a need for any AV on my phone. It's just one more thing to slow it down and drain battery power imo.

    I am not sure why you would want an AV on your phone? It seems pointless to me. It would just run the battery down faster.

    As long as you download only from the Market, and browse safe websites, there isn't really a need for an anti-virus.
