And what happens if you get malware on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch? You wouldn't necessarily know it. Not all malware has big, flashy alerts like FakeAlert malware. Some is quiet and surreptitious like Flame.
And what's worse, you wouldn't be able to detect or remove iOS malware easily because Apple doesn't allow full-featured, real-time scanning anti-virus software in the iOS App Store.
Meanwhile, you can get free anti-virus software for Android from Sophos and other vendors.
In spite of the existence of Android anti-virus software, when you compare Android with iOS, there's certainly a big difference in terms of device security.
