Just like any other major mobile electronic it is bound to be dropped accidentally or on purpose. The guys over at Square Trade have tested the durability of the BlackBerry PlayBook on a concrete surface. The PlayBook actually receives less damage than I expected on the first drop. The second drop is pretty brutal. Check out the video below. Compare to another drop test I found online for the iPad the PlayBook does better on the drop test. From a really low altitude the iPad cracks right away on the second video below.
SquareTrade is offering 2 free warranty just head over to the YouTube video at this link. This is their contest not ours, you can ask them what else you want to see dropped in the YouTube video comments and the winner will be announced April 25th.
