You can't add security on top of an unsecure OS.

RIM could run Android in a VM and the BB infrastructure in another, signed VM, thus partitioning the unsecured from the secured and maintain compatibility.

I believe RIM could do it, but it will require some out-of-the-box thinking and courage on their part. I don't think they have many hands left at this point.

I'd like to second this recommendation. The main omission from this device is the lack of Amazon Prime streaming support. Also, there is a problem with switching audio in a mp4/m4v file sends video racing ahead, however, strangely enough, mkv's work fine. No sub-$250 device I'm aware of does it all perfectly, but overall, I recommend the WDTV Live it and would buy again.
