Nemos,

That is a fair(and accurate) Statement to make.

As Android's Popularity has risen;more and more Virus/Malware Writers have started writing Code Directed at it.

The way I look at it most modern Day OSes are reasonably secure(as long as they are patched);the vulnerabilities lie in the Extensions/Apps which may not be patched with the same Regularity(or have the same Security Resources) as the Big OS Companies.

"On the other hand, reports of malware affecting these systems represent the flipside to the open-source coin"

I would say that it is not worse as what we have seen in windows based system and probably virus is coming hand by hand with popularity.

@T.alex, i agree that Andriod has picked up market shares due to fragmented software domain but unless Google plugs the security concerns the cosumers will be looking out for better OS.

@Hailley, the noticable OS that will be picking up shares is Windows. I think after Nokia's acquisition, Windows might further accelerate its market share growth. I own a Nokia smartphone and i find Window's interface quite appealing. 

Also, who are others? Is Samsung's Tizen one of them?
