    I don't see the need to use it. First off the iPad is in lock-down courtesy of Apple. Apps are only available after certification from Apple and that takes time and money and part of that is in regards to Malware and crashing the OS.

    Safari pages into RAM memory and not NAND Flash. Even if you wanted to run AV it would hammer your battery as it takes resources to monitor files on your iPad for changes and malware.

    Plus, AV programs would be against Apple's closed garden rules (since they would need to mess with other apps), so they wouldn't be allowed in the App store.
