> Smartphones are more insecure ... than modern computers.

Insecure in what sense? A typical application on Windows/Mac/Linux PC can read/change all my data, but this is not so on Android. The only advantage of a PC AFAICS is the hardware visualization so OS can run wireless and other complex drivers isolated from the rest of the system. But such advantage is mostly theoretical as very few PC utilizes that.

YMMV, but my last (Android) smartphone got 1 OTA update over the course of 2.5 years. Something tells me it wasn't because the software was so secure it didn't need an update...

You apparently chose your handset poorly. Mine went from 2.3.x to 4.0, then 4.0.1, then 4.1, then 4.1.1, then 4.2, 4.2.1, and some days ago to 4.2.2.
