Google executive: Android is more secure than the iPhone

Eric Schmidt, Executive of the American multinational corporation Google has stated on Monday, Android is more secure than iPhone.

Analyst of Gartner, David Willis, said to Schmidt in a 45-minute question-and-answer session with Willis and his Gartner colleague Drue Reeves, also a Gartner Distinguished Analyst.

“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.”

The Google Executive responded on jerk, “Not secure? It’s more secure than the iPhone…”

Willis: “What I heard was Android is more secure than the iPhone.”

Schmidt:   “Android is very secure.”

While android has over a billion users, Schmidt explains, the Android platform is through rigorous real-world security testing.

Android Operating System is the world’s most popular operating system to date knocking off iPhone in the scene.
