the "look what new toy I just got" generation

Well, from what I've seen there is no single generation which has that attitude. There's both senior geeks and teenage ones, and everything in-between, who just want the latest and greatest toy to play with.

I'm still pretty happy with my old, trusty Nokia 6630 ;) The camera sucks, but otherwise it's been an awesome phone all these years ;)

To some degree that's true - I have a heap of apps on my iPhone that I don't use often - but everything on there I do use as some point. My sons and daughter-in-law to be (late teens and early twenties) have heaps of junk on theirs that they never use - a lot of them are those stupid free single purpose "tickle your fancy for five minutes" apps, that's probably the difference, but the point still carries, most iPhone users actively go looking for apps on a regular basis.
