Apple’s iOS Is More Secure Than Google’s Android!

An interesting report run by security experts at Symantec indicates that Apple iOS devices are much “less prone” to most security risks than Google’s Android platform.

For its closed app distribution nature, the iOS is more secure and its increased resistance to resource abuse, data loss, and data integrity attacks among the factors.

In a head-to-head comparison, Symantec found that iOS was just more secure in many areas, and was found, contrary to their findings regarding Android, to have full protection against malware attacks. Apple’s platform was also found to have greater security feature implementation in the categories of access control, application provenance, and encryption.

The report also applauds Apple for their thorough and excellent job in designing the non-interface aspects of iOS. Check out the full report in all of its detail over at Symantec. [via mactrast]

BGR provided some exclusive details about Google’s upcoming successor to the Nexus S smartphone, Nexus 4G. The device will run on fourth-generation networks based on Long-Term Evolution radio technology, it will have a native 720p display and will run a yet unreleased Android 4.0 version:

We have been told that the Google Nexus 4G will feature a next-generation dual-core 1.2GHz or 1.5GHz CPU, and contrary to reports about it featuring an NVIDIA Kal-El processor, our source indicates it’s most likely an OMAP 4460 or a, ultra low-power 28nm Krait-based Snapdragon. The display is said to be a 720p HD “monster-sized” screen, and it won’t feature physical Android menu buttons below the screen anymore – everything will be software-based.

You can expect a slim package containing – in addition to the above – a 4G LTE radio, a one-megapixel front camera for video calls and a five-megapixel camera on the back for taking stills and capturing full HD (1080p) video. A word about the back camera: “The 5-megapixel camera, however, is said to be an advanced 5-megapixel sensor delivering class-leading image quality in addition to superior low-light performance” When, you ask? Around Thanksgiving, if Boy Genius Reports’ sources are anything to go by.
