PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless There's an article making the rounds right now about how applications on iOS crash more often than applications on Android. I'm not going to detail the entire methodology - the article itself does so - but it does raise an interesting talking point about how both mobile operating systems handle application crashes and updates.

I'm probably out of step - most normal people replace their handheld devices every 18 months or so.

Far from it - for one (in the case of most typical nowadays handheld electronic thingy, mobile phone - it is what really brought DAP or digital cameras to humanity), most of the 5+ billion mobile subscribers own their devices, and are on prepaid / not on contract. The average usage time is, IIRC, at least two times longer than you imagine.

(also, flash storage typically accounts, I believe, for its slow degradation / I didn't feel such problems as you describe / maybe yours are elsewhere)
