    You say

    “people will replace their operating system on a whim, much as they now do with PC web browsers.”

    Why do you think that the mobile operating systems will model PC web browsers and not PC operating systems. In my experience developing for every major web browser is relatively easy compared to developing for multiple phone operating systems. I think that this means there will be more operating system lock-in on the mobile platform as consumers find their set of applications they can’t live without.

    “as consumers find their set of applications they can’t live without”

    Mobile apps tend to very simple, replicable and don’t really have much of a learning curve. There are no apps that people can’t find replacements for. PC apps require a long time to learn and that is why people get locked in.
