Although I completely agree that it's worth being cautious, I'm with John McL7 on this - the way mobile OS architecture works is still different from a PC, and as long as you're aware of what you're installing and using you should be fine
There are a number of companies that offer 'virus protection' for mobiles, but personally I don't see the point - it's more scare tactics than anything else. Maybe some of the community can elaborate on their opinions on the matter too?
Let us know if there's anything else - and don't forget to backup all your important data if you do want to be safe than sorry - there's more chance you'll lose or break your phone statistically than catch a virus!

Kaspersky has a firewall, Anti-virus and many other features. If your phone is stolen you can send a text to it & it will wipe all your data and another text will bar the handset. Also, if the thief changes the SIM card it will send a text/email to you giving you the new SIM card number (so you can still send texts to it to delete personal data & bar the phone).
Also, you can activate GPS tracking (by sending a text) and you will be informed of your phones location which can help you to recover it.
I am just sorry that Kaspersky don't have a version for the Nokia N900.
My imaginary friend thinks you have serious problems

there are a few Antivirus solutions on Symbian avaliable from the Ovi store..
but unless you have patched the Firmware so the device can accept unsigned apps then your screwed!
Symbian s60 3rd edition was made more secure. also the threat of malware is about 2% so i would not worry about it.
Current devices Sharp gx15, Nokia 6700s,E71, 6300, Two Samsung galaxy s2's and a Huawei Ascend g300
