PlayBook Hard like a ROCK!
ok... this might be a pointless thread, but I'd like to share my experience:
I accidentally knocked my playbook to the ground (hard floor, not carpet). The sound of the drop was pretty loud and I swore it scared the *&^*()*_ out of me!!!! Plus, my playbook was naked cause i took off the convertible case cause it was too bulky. I picked up the playbook and turned it all around inspecting for any scratches or damage. NOTHING. I was like... helllllllllll no, it didn't damage the playbook at all? I actually doubted that my playbook was fine, but good thing it is! WOW. The amazing speakers still works fine, camera, everything! This is like one of those "I can't believe this!" moments. I would've cried to death if this thing broke. I swear I will take good and extreme care of my playbook from now on!
This experience just forced me to write this thread. ;P

My son tripped and dropped my PlayBook while we were on vacation. The screen cracked all the way across and it was in an Otterbox. Consider yourself lucky. BTW my PlayBook still works fine.Left BlackBerry in May 2014 after very poor customer service and poor build quality. Had been a BlackBerry user since 2007 with the BlackBerry Pearl 8100.
Now rocking a HTC One M8.

Oh you mean the PlayBook is a well made device. Yes it is and I know from my own clumsy handling of the device. It is a lot tougher than some of the competition devices.[B]Real BlackBerry Phones Have Real Keyboards

I know from personal experience that the PB screen is made of glass, so it can certainly break. There is a ~1mm air gap between the screen and the LCD under it---so even a strong finger push in the center of the screen would be enough to crack it, especially if the glass surface has been microfractured by dust and other common household contaminants.
