Hmmm, there are 100 million Android Devices out there now.

If Wireless companies are unwilling and/or unable to patch those devices then it leaves a potentially huge security hole.

A hole that could make the recent Sony issue positively benign!

Need to learn more about this but if hackers sit at hotpsots such as their local Starbucks collecting users authentication token then you could have a lot of problems pretty darn quick.
