Why not just skip the install of the virus? I'm sure you've read Google's take on this. But folks are going to install such anyway and the antivirus companies would be stupid to not supply this even where there is no virus known today. Yes there are apps that are bad but why install those?
I feel silly asking this, but I am new to the Android tablet world. I have the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity, TF700T. Is it necessary to download antivirus software and antimalware software to your tablet?
