The listed problems are not limited to Android apps using SSL. They are also present on non browser apps using SSL for many platforms. See the recent paper from M. GEORGIEV et al.

It is important to discover the vulnerabilities of the protocol and of the different implementations and use. We have made a review of the latest discovered issues of SSL in our security newsletter 22. (http://eric-diehl.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Security-Newsletter-22.pdf)
