This is also why I only have a Nexus, most of these security issues are with third party android handsets with most never getting timely updates (Google really needs to fix this issue). I buy a Nexus for the same reason you get an iphone, up_to_date_security_patches. Yes many of you will say "but, but you can use xyz third party android roms and they don't have this issue". The issue with that is android is now mainstream so 98% of android device owners do not have the ability or the knowledge to change the firmware. The fix is simple, Google needs to start enforcing better security policies on companies who want too use the Google android(tm) brand. People are just going to get sick of not having updates and move to GASP! Windows or Apple.
