Schmidt talks Android security and fragmentation

Google's Eric Schmidt declared Monday that the Android platform is more secure than the Apple iPhone. Schmidt made the statement during a question and answer session at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo.

The question asked to Schmidt by Gartner analyst David Willis was, "If you polled many people in this audience they would say Google Android is not their principal platform [...] When you say Android, people say, wait a minute, Android is not secure."

Schmidt replied to that question stating, "Not secure? It's more secure than the iPhone."

The Google executive didn't exactly offer concrete proof to back up his claim, reportedly dancing around a straight answer and stating that Android has over 1 billion users and with that many users Android gets a lot of real-world security testing.

Schmidt also addressed another common Android complaint of fragmentation. He said, "With Android we have an agreement for vendors that you keep the Android stores compatible and that is a great breakthrough for Android."
