Do Your Smartphones Need Anti-Virus Protection?

I was quoted as an expert in this article on Inc.com – 

Great work by Shana Keith getting that contact, and great article by Minda Zetlin.  I was happy to spend time talking to her about the trends in mobile security.  There's definitely going to be more scary stuff from all of these smartphones with app stores, because the opportunities for fraud and theft online through them are so great.

Personally, I've started using Lookout (https://www.mylookout.com/ ) on my Android phone, and it has worked very well for me so far.  I haven't lost my phone to use the map/screamer functions yet, but it sure feels good knowing they're available.  They have a very interesting blog as well – http://blog.mylookout.com/.  I had previously used a F-Secure mobile client (http://campaigns.f-secure.com/mobile-security/index.html ) on my windows mobile phone, but that was a long time ago.
