IMHO, Blackberry OS would perhaps request user permission before anything is installed on the device. Of course nothing is impossible. But usually in such sparse platforms, virus attacks are less known as the impact will be limited as compared to virus's made for windows platform where the impact is widespread.
Just like you would not have heard on much virus for the Macintosh platform. The 1st virus for macs was discovered in 2006 where as for windows there has been viruses for ages and that too for various reasons. I would consider Blackberry platform to be very stable and secure one.
