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.
