Mobile diary: Don’t try this at home

From The Register, video evidence of the surprising resilience of smartphones to being dunked or dropped. It should be comforting for iPhone users to know that “the iPhone’s screen remained intact right up to a 39-foot (11.9m) plummet.” That is, unless you really want to be one of those cool kids with a cracked screen.

These tests didn’t include any Windows phones, and I’m not taking any chances. When I bought my new Lumia 521 (after replacing the screen on my Lumia 800 twice), I bought a cover as well to protect it from those accidental drops.
