Yes. Anything that uses software can get a virus.

Even the RAZR can get a virus.

so what happens? And should you still watch what kind of email you open and what sites you visit?

There aren’t any as of now. I’m sure you’ll hear about it someone ever makes one. The virus has to be specific to the OS you’re using. So, don’t worry.

The thing about a computer virus is that they only work if they can spread (hence the term). It would be very hard to create a virus that spread across such a specific platform from user to user so it’s not at all likely for the forseeable future.
