Apple is policing the apps that are submitted to apps store. I am sure they at least check the data traffic going between iPhone/ iPad and network. The policing process has increased the time to market of the apps. Nonetheless, it helps protecting the apps users. What policy has Google added? Is policing enough to keep malware and threat away? Is there other better criteria to keep yourself from "trouble"?

Security was a factor in my decision to go with Apple rather than Android for my tablet and smartphone. I can't say that I have 100% trust and confidence in Apple's policing of apps, but on the other hand, the Android Marketplace is a wide open free-for-all.

Microsoft has come with Microsoft Security Essential, this was the long waited initiative from the Windows users. Also if the OS Developer works for working against threats that will be the best way for it. Google and Apple as well can focus their development and will be able to provide best possible security solution.

What we need is some security in the network layer traffic itself by which a data packet coming from a malicious source can be quickly identified and destroyed there itself

and what you don't know... just to make eveybody extemely paranoid (anybody in the DOD listening?): The PRC, Indian, and Arab Foreign Intellegences Agencies have covertly penitrated the ASIC and cellphone driver develop teams, and have buried undocumented hardware registers and software backdoors under several layers of obfucated and poorly written code to bypass security layer. how would you ever know they didn't? their code sucks so badly it would take an army of engineer to decode it and translate it back into something readable... Example: send SMS message to cellphone Y. security is kicked off and cellphone enters zombie suck downmode for uploading spy applications: malicious hacker video and audio steaming from your iphone to any location on the internet. malicious hacker fake battery powerdown to shut off your phone while you are talking about something don't like. Malicious hacker wifi packet sniffer or stealing online passwords for any computer on your private wifi network.

what's that? you didn't notice the special, "DISABLE-NO-EXECUTE" opcode they inserted into the ARM-core RTL buried beneath layers of obfuscated memory BIST and DFT modifications to the licensed ARM-core RTL?
