    I haven't gotten my snap on case yet for protection.
    Yesterday I dropped (slipped out of my sweatjacket) it and dropped it good: about 4 feet or so onto unforgiving ashphault, hard, with a bounce afterward and everything and it works as well as ever.
    I don't think I or anyone would volunteer for this experiment but here's one test the Droid has passed.

    Dropped it once yesterday afternoon, got the painful bounce and another smash into the ground.... not a single scratch. I'm pretty stunned.

    So no damage to the glass?

    I'm terrified that one slip up and that glass will shatter.

    I almost dropped my new Droid yesterday coming home from the store. I was in a parking lot and it slipped from my hand and was falling into the roadway directly in the path of an oncoming vehicle. Thinking and reacting quickly, (as I am prone to do in these situations) I threw myself forward and managed to cradle said Droid Unit safely between my arms and my body as the vehicle knocked me forcefully back into the Parking Lot area. Not one single scratch on my Droidal apparatus!

    I am in the hospital now

    I'm sorry Alfmoonspace...I was making a little joke about being so protective of my droid. I'm fine and so is my droid.

    (The car, however, is totaled) *snicker*:icon_ banana:
