Google Play under apps antivirus for android: https://play.google.com/store/search?q=antivirus+for+android&c=apps

Currently I'm only aware of a rootkit tool to find the Carrier IQ rootkit.

Some of the better known AV vendors have malware tools and AV's bundled in their Andriod apps.

If you would like a professional app just search for it on the internet. I.E. avast.apk or avastpro.apk. I always download professional apps,then move the app or. Apk to the SD card and manually install it on the phone. I suppose it's better so you won't have to put up with dumb ad's on the unpaid apps.

There's tons of antiviruses available. Just search it. I currently use Sophos which works fine. :) There are no antirootkit as far as I know and Malwarebytes' is Windows only. It does not work for Windows phone though or Windows RT.

Note that mobile operating systems are quite different compared to desktop operating systems like Windows or Linux. Usually they are striped down and heavily modified to run on smaller less powerful devices. As far as I know malware is very limited to these devices. Most security products on these are antivirus or policy based.

I have AVG Free Antivirus installed in my Android smartphone. You may also want to check NetQin or Lookout.
