Smartphone Security Limitations: Conflicting Traditions
Smartphones are becoming a dominant form of mobile computing in the United States, and, more slowly, the world. The Smartphone, as a platform, blends a traditional general computing platform with a specialized mobile phone platform.

The general computing tradition is historically open, allowing its owners, i.e., users and administrators, to install whatever software they choose, and to add or remove hardware as they please.
