The point I was trying to make was that the survey ended on 12/15, the 1st day the GNex was available in the US, so the number of users that could potentially report crashes in ICS was potentially very small prior to that (at least in the US). I am going to over exaggerate to make my point here, and I'm not trying to flame
If there were 1 billion iOS 5 devices in the wild and 0.5% of them had one app error it would still be 5 million app errors reported. If there are 100 Android 4 devices in the wild and 100% reported 10 app errors it would be 1,000 errors. If you put those two statistics in a chart like the one linked below, you could see results like you see between iOS 5 and Android 4.
BTW, I recommend reading the actual article on Forbes. It is very interesting. s.n.knipe, this comment isn't meant to imply that you haven't read the article, its a general comment for anyone reading the thread
