Android and Security

Chris Nerney, CITEworld:

So security is the main reason why Android trails Apple’s iOS in the enterprise mobile market, even as it dominates in the consumer space, and clearly Google bears the greatest responsibility for Android’s vulnerabilities.

Zero evidence of this assertion in the article. Zero. And where by “dominates in the consumer space” he means “accounts for 30 percent of handset profits, all of that going to Samsung”. What I see is that the enterprise has money. And just like consumers with money to spend, enterprise buyers are more likely to choose the iPhone and iPad. Android’s unit sale market share dominance stems from price-sensitive buyers.

Would be good for Android to get that malware situation under control though, that I agree with.
