In an independent and not so scientific test from tech enthusiasts from Electronics Break conducted a drop test. From waist height, they dropped a new iPad 2, a Motorola Xoom, and a Samsung Galaxy tablet directly onto the cement sidewalk.
All three Tablets broke, with the Samsung Galaxy fairing the best. However, all three glass covers broke causing significant damage. All of this could have been avoided simply by using a Mobile Edge Sleeve or Case to protect it. Click here to see Tablet case offerings form Mobile Edge and Sumo.
