Delivered with a spice of arrogance, Google’s executive chairman Eric Schmidt on Monday declared the Android platform more secure than Apple’s iPhone. The comparison, made during a question-and-answer session at the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, drew laughter from a packed-house audience.

It’s more secure than the iPhone.” The Google chairman danced around a straight answer explaining Android has more than a billion users, is a platform that will be around for a while, and therefore goes through rigorous real-world security testing.
