"It's pretty guaranteed that no criminal attacks will take place until the installed base for Android has become large enough to interest the bad guys financially."
Oh please, get real, they'll already be embedding their code even now before it is released. All Google can do is hope that they[Google] are SMART enough to buy them into their fold and that is interdependent on both of them being Squeaky Clean and Untouchable, for then you can do Anything you like/All Manner of Dirty Deeds done dirt Cheap with Relative Impunity without breaking any Mickey Mouse laws [the ones you choose to break subjectively]/traditional safeguards.
Until then, they are easy Prey for all they are becoming is an MS Clone rather than its Nemesis. Just another Puppet in a Gilded Cage.
However, as in All Things, a New Hire can alight New Fire.
