Is it overrated? I don't know. Do people rate it unreasonably highly? How would one determine this?

Does it fall short in promised functionality? All OSes do. Does Android need some further development, especially regarding some security issues? Definitely. It is up to individual vendors, however, to implement new source code and patch any of the problems they have created in their OEM versions.

You may want to have a look at this: Michael Kassner has written other articles specific to Android security as well. One includes a permissions system testing application.
