iPad 2 lives after getting run over by a car; owes it to a tough G-Form sleeve case
Here comes another tale of a popular gadget surviving after getting abused in an unusual fashion. This time it is the iPad 2 that got subjected to a survival test, namely getting run over by a car. However, there is one little catch in the whole story – the iPad 2 was wearing some tough protection.

Some of you may have already heard of a company called G-Form. Besides a selection of rugged elbow and knee pads, the protective gear that it manufactures includes a line of heavy duty, impact resistant sleeve cases for laptops and tablets. Sure enough, that is exactly what the aforementioned iPad 2 was wearing when it fell under the wheels of a moving car, and without such a case, the tablet would have probably never survived.

Luckily, a video of the whole action is available and you can check it out below, and for more survival stories, check out how an iPhone survived after falling from a plane, and how a Palm Pixi got baked and lived to tell about it.

Wow...Some much BS. If an ipad survives a stupid stunt, Phonearena is all over it, but when Symbian,Rim BB, WP7, Android, or WebOs Does something that is actually useful, Phonearena skips it. Phonearena is Biased. Know wonder why you have the "TIP US" tab in the corner, because your to lazy to go out there and look for real news.
