The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)
A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

No point paying when you can get excellent ones for free: Avast Mobile Security and Dr.Web Lite from google play store.
But if you feel the need, you can always buy an antivirus solution.

These are obvious things that are quickly tracked down and fixed. You notice extra charges on your bill. You notice ads popping up. The services used for fraudulent charges stop paying commissions to the bad guys or are shut down by law enforcement/phone companies. Apps become available that quickly tell you where ads are coming from so you can remove the offending app.
The part that scares me is that I fear a more insidious storm brewing. Specifically, the creation of botnets using Android devices. They may be quite valuable on the black market. What for? I'm not really sure yet. DDOS? Spam? I can think of other even scarier purposes.
I'm sure we'll see things ramp up in 2013.
