Android Security concerns = Generic security concerns

Google's Android platform could complicate security : This article on expresses security concerns regarding a mobile device running Android. All the concerns turn out to be generic ones when:

(a) Users have the free ability to install software applications which access their device's core functionality (such as making calls, sending sms, using the camera, etc. for a phone).

(b) Such a device connects to the corporate network.

So, there is really no security concern in the article that is hyper-specific to Android... such as, say a security hole or bug in the platform.
