Android is a widely popular software platform, featured on a number of handheld devices such as the Motorola Droid, the Samsung Galaxy, and the LG HTC. Android developers have full access to the same framework APIs used by the core applications.
The open-source nature of the Android development platform, while appealing to developers for obvious reasons, is stirring a debate in the security industry about whether the pros indeed outweigh the cons. Apple's iOS is less open, requiring that only software with a particular code can be downloaded. Critics of Android point to the rising instances of malware, and strongly suggest that the platform make some changes.
