"Some phones models have the same processor but it is often underclocked to price it lower, even though there is no change in hardware." How is this true?

Good start, one of the aspects of this I would like to see addressed is the fundamental difference between Android and iOS when it comes to implementing a Type 1 Hypervisor, which is really the only rigorous way to enforce any security.

This is a good article. I find it interesting. Is short and only touches the basics but it really feels as an introduction towards what may become a great follow-through series of articles. It was interesting to learn the different terminology used for Android and iPhone. Like Jailbrake for iPhone and Rooting for iPhone. etc.
