No, but may I ask why? Linux is probably one of the safest if not THE safest OS out there... Mostly because of the User Permission Levels (root.. user.. etc)..

IMHO you don't really need an anti-virus for your N900..

I concur. Just stick to installing apps from sources you are confident with, i.e. pretty much stick to the official & community repos and you'll be fine!

@madskillz6 welcome to the linux world. The best solutions is to change your desktop to Linux as well. :-)
Else you could try clamav.
