Because there aren't enough linux viruses for the desktop let alone on mobile platforms and definitely not any that can be caught via a tiny browser. Its funny because you prob didnt even need an Anti virus with Symbian.

There may at some stage be malware for Bada but nothing an anti virus would solve. God windows really makes people gullible and complacent.

Well as per my logic linux isnt much vulnerable to threats and viruses are developed for leading os's...... which bada *ahem* isnt..... and also the application installation procedure of bada is pretty stringent as any off market app cant be installed!! so rest assured budy!!!!
well for now!!! lol but thats the fact "nothing is safe"

You don't encounter any viruses in your phone so far. But it is required to have an antivirus in your phone because you usually connect it to a computer. With that, you can't expect that you cannot get a virus from the computer.
