I think people DO care about security! With everyone using their phones for everything these days, they want to make sure their information is safe. I know you can get a virus on an android, not sure about iphone, but not blackberry (yet). But its not as much about viruses as it is about hacking and all. People can hack phones these days and get a lot of their personal info.

RIM's startegy (business + loyal + new comers, in very brief) is fine.
All is about finding the good tempo to :
1. Prove they're agile (investors) : manage the company
2. Show they're on time (developers) : deliver betas
3. Loyalty large accounts (companies, administrations) : offer free upgrades (BB7)
4. Confirm BB10 will wow (consumers) : demonstrate and leak [partially breaks the launch momentum, but ... necessity makes the rules]
P.S: The point 1 upgraded priority (was 2 IMHO) is based on recent "panic move" regarding stock.
It's chimerical to believe RIM can bind its current strategy into a new one in such a short time.
Moreover it'll kill T. Heins credibility and persuasiveness.
Float the boat => Clean the deck => Hoist the sail.
