need I worry about virus on windows mobile?

I recently purchased a Dell Axim x51v (v nice pda, by the way - pleased with it) running Windows Mobile 5.

I've seen nothing about securing this OS against virus or malware. Is it
(1) not vulnerable in the same way as XP (unlikely I guess),
(2)is it vulnerable but no existing virus in the 'wild, or
(3) do I need to take precautions?

Thx for advice.

I read something about viruses being a problem on smart phones and pdas. I'll be back if I can find it. It is an issue with them if the have windows mobile or a symbian os...
