The results seem very reasonable. Looking at the original Forbes source
for the Phandroid article, we see that the data are normalized, and both cite what would seem to be a valid metric to ensure proper sample size - over 214 million app launches were monitored.
I posted this as a lark in another thread and was surprised to find that not everyone knows that iDevices can lock up with a bad app, and I suspect that many people have never considered this as a difference in the two competing operating systems.
Yeah I should have thought about the lounge for posting it, thanks guys for moving it.
I didn't know they would lock up either, that's interesting given the rather angelic status iDevices enjoy in the blogosphere.
