Apple "Continued issues with the App Store approval process are prompting developers to shun the platform entirely. Though there are tens of thousands of other developers pumping out over 100000 iPhone apps, will continued migration away from iPhone development result in less quality software for the platform? Worse yet, will users even care?"

Well it is not as bad, from all the apps I have encountered on the market you can count the apps which crash on one hand, and those are mostly ones coded with C and bound against a special version of android and never updated.
You usually can read it in the comments if it is so. From 100 or so I have downloaded 3-4 were crashy and most of them were coded against Android 1.0 on the G1 and never updated.
Dalvik saves a lot of pain in this area WinCE users had to endure, while Dalvik is not the best VM there and definitely not the fastest it is a good starting point for many applications to prevent crash desaster.
