A new study finds that criminals are building networks of infected Android phones, just as they've long done with Windows PCs.

Looks like Android users will be paying a steep price for Google's refusal to test the safety of the apps it posts in its Android Market. I've yet to hear of an iPhone botnet. it's not impossible. But Apple checks out iOS apps before offering them to their users. Google needs to start doing the same. And quick.
