Yup, that's our one advantage (although we can't say for sure it's true on the K4). However, most of the "stuff" that we can interact with (loading books, usb mounting, web browsing, etc) are Java based, and it's much harder to exploit a virtual machine with something like a buffer overflow. There is not much hope with the browser, as webkit is pretty secure as Apple, Google, etc constantly supports it.
