Dodgy apps kill our phones

Motorola moans
Motorola's CEO Sanjay Jha has been moaning that software peddled on the Open Android store has caused his phones to break.

Jha claims that the bulk of returned Motorola phones are the result of applications that cause performance problems. Of all the Motorola Android devices that are returned, 70 percent come back because applications affect performance.

While Google removes malicious apps, there is no mechanism for ensuring that applications perform efficiently. They are not tested for  power consumption and CPU use and that can cause a phone to become useless, he muttered.

Still he thinks that Android and its software is still the way to go. He just thinks that there are a few teething problems as the phones start to become more popular.
