the odds of it falling flat and not on a corner are very very low... if you drop any tablet from waist/shoulder height onto a hard surface like cement, it's going to break 99% of the time...

They had the nerve to purchase two iPads and then smash them away..... Bravo !

yeah but they shouldn't waste them like that...Do you know how many Foxconn workers die making those things!?! Have a little respect for the poor slave workers worked to the bone on Steve Jobs watch.

You don't need a drop test to know when you put a cover on a glass will help absorb the impact. Pretty useless test in my opinion.

i dropped my ipad 2 12 days after i bought it and i had the smart cover on it and i was walking around a corner in my house and bumped my elbow against the wall and dropped my ipad at waist level. The smart cover fell off but luckily my ipad mostly fell on the corner and the crack was not bad at all. I did not have a warranty and took it to apple a couple weeks later to see how much it would cost to fix it, and they just replaced it. apple is the best and any computers or anything i'm going to them to buy.
