Looking at the poll statistics, it occured to me that the number of rebooting devices are actually more than 20%. The poll is devided in American and European (why??) and then everything is summed. This a a rather odd way of doing it, but the actual number is 20, not 10 as it seems to be.

Maybe its just power users that experience the "occasional reboots"
Perhaps. All I can tell you is that I have both a pre-production N900 from the summit and a production N900. The pre-production unit rebooted a total of three times while running the pre-production firmware and not once on the production firmware. The production N900 has not rebooted.

I keep Mauku open for Twitter. I browse the web, sometimes with five, six, or more browser windows open at once. I sometimes keep Google Latitude or GoWalla open to share my location. I listen to audio from local files and streaming from the Internet. I watch video clips. I check four IMAP and one POP3 account for email every five minutes, plus have MfE synchronizing email, calendar, contacts, and tasks with an Exchange 2007 server. I take and share photos. I stay logged into AIM, ICQ, Jabber (GoogleTalk and Ovi), MSN, SIP, Skype, and Y!M and have location updates enabled for them. I keep Extras-testing enabled and install available updates from it. I have installed items from Extras-devel and SDK/Tools.

I don't know what kind of user that makes me. In the past, I've been told I'm not a power user. Regardless, if you have a load set you suspect will reliably reboot N900s, I'm interested to hear it.

I've been using mine since Christmas, no unexpected reboots so far. It's a European device (Germany actually)
