Anti Virus and malware protection for Android / Ice Cream Sandwich

My granddaughter had a iPod touch stolen (Would you believe whilst at Oxford University for a 3 day admission interview). She is (I am paying!!) replacing it with a 7" Samsung Galaxy Tablet 2. She will use it both as a MP3 and, with a Keyboard dock, to do essays at school to send via Cloud, e mail or Dropbox? to her heavier laptop. I have bought, but not yet opened or installed, Norton Tablet Security. Her laptop uses free MSE along with SAS. Any hints or tips on a) Anti virus (maybe freebies) b) Anti Malware c) I think she can compose essays etc in the Samsung built in format then either e mail them to her PC and open them in Word 2007 - is this oK and is free dropbox suitable? A free version of Cloud Knowhow is included. The Tablet is coming in a day or two.Finally I think there is an App to use iTunes on the Tablet. Any advice on the above items would be appreciated.

I use Avast Mobile Security - good usability, no slow-downs (Galaxy Nexus, ICS). You may want to read this article about Android security - the main vulnerabilities aren't actually viruses, it's permissions in Android.
