    So, who has a reliable AV solution for android? The information on my mobile is more valuable to me than even that which is on my computer, and nothing is on there to protect me. I suppose a firewall would be a best bet, so we can watch traffic

    So the "big news" here is if a user installs a suspicious application from some random website it might cause damage. Yeah, I think we knew that already and there's no need to buy AV software to "protect" us from that.
