True to a point.  Android is the primary target because its the largest & higher chance of success...smaller pool iphone lesser statistical chance of success.  If your designing malware which would you attack? this was mentioned at BHat 2012. These TOE evals will change based upon the obvious user base and easily exploitable CVE's.
