Wow, that article was... so biased. It had to be written by some Apple Fan. Yes, there is a higher chance of infection because of the open design of Android. That being said Apple is not immune to it as the article seems to imply.
With Freedom comes responsibility. You can protect your self even if your vendor hasn't upgraded your OS by simply installing a free AntiVirus app like Lookout. Combined with a little personal attention to what you are downloading, paying attention to the permissions the app is requesting, checking out the comments posted for the app, and say a little common sense and you should be pretty safe.
The last one is usually were the problems come from. Gen-gimmi doesn't have any common sense and they want nothing to do with taking personal responsibility.
And just to clarify: I'm not saying the carriers/vendors shouldn't be better at releasing the proper OS updates, I am only saying: if they are lazy, it is up to you to do what you can to protect yourself.
