New iPad Proves to be Tougher than Predecessors

The folks at GizmoSlip took an iPad 3 on a field trip to check how tough the new device is. Surprisingly, and despite the abuse, the device did well, and fared much better than its predecessors. For instance, the new iPad survived a 4 foot drop on its back and corner, a test that the iPad 2 failed miserably.

On the other hand, the iPad 3 isn’t immune to dynamite… but again, what is?

Kids, don’t try this at home…

    This is bullshit, if you have dropped it twice then it will be weakened. Try the test again and drop it on it’s face first.
