The main problem with Android' security or lack thereof is that Google does not examine apps before allowing them in then Android Market. There have been scores of malicious apps in the Market that were designed to steal user data, send texts and more. Also apps that leak user data without user consent or knowledge. BlackBerry and Apple iOs do not have that problem because apps are subject to strict standards. iOS has had some privacy issues and big security issues when jailbroken but BlackBerry has none of those issues. There are some spy programs that work on BB but they have to be user installed and allowed. Keep your BlackBerry password protected with a short timeout and don't give others access. BlackBerry is the most secure mobile device. Viruses made for Windows and other platforms do not work on the BB os.
