3 phones dropped. Which one kept going?

At Nokia Unfenced 3 phones were dropped from 15 and 25 ft heights in the desert. Ultimately, each drop had a bad looking moment as battery covers and batteries flew off but phones were re-assembled and continued to work, but 2 did fail eventually.

In the end, the durability of all 3 was impressive. If you want to know which survived and which finally didn’t ( remember, this is the 4th drop) check out the video below.

These tests were not exactly scientific, and for the last ones, from about 25 ft, where phones were dropped screen down, only 1 of the 3 appeared to land that way. Not a huge surprise, but does bring me to wonder how weight distribution in a phone affects it’s fall. Are some phones destined to land a certain way around, like toast is once buttered. And without repeatedly dropping it, how do you know if yours is more likely to land screen up for example. Ah well, hope you enjoyed the video and my rambilings.

I am a software developer with most professional experience in the Windows .Net realm and I'm currently a WPF developer with Starkey Labs. However, I have wanted for some time to start the mobile developer journey properly and being an N900 owner, this was to be in the realm of QT. Job hunting, moving to Minnesota and changing jobs put my plans on hold 6-12 months but things are starting to settle now, just as I'm getting sorted to start some things, Microsoft and Nokia merge. This blog is about my novice mobile development experiences and hopefully will end up complete with links to download some apps on various platforms, but obviously by the name, Sybian, Maemo/Meego and Windows Mobile. In other stuff, I am English, I support Everton FC, I have visited Glastonbury music festival 5 times and recommend it to anyone. I am married and my wife and i have a dog called Friday.
