This is not something I’ll be testing out myself! But the guys at SquareTrade.com have given the Nexus 7 a bit of a bashing.
In actual fact they have run a comparison to see which is toughest, the new Google Tablet, or the Apple iPad. I’m not sure ‘toughness’ is up there on my top buying considerations list, but actually it’s quite likely that sooner or later an accident will happen so we want to know it can survive the odd bump.
The following shows some intentionally careless people dropping their shiny new tablets, and to be honest I find it quite painful to watch! Note that the authors of this video specialise in selling warranties, so read into this what you will.
Personally, given the price of the Nexus 7 I am perfectly happy to take on the risk myself, besides, I’m generally careful with my gadgets (touch wood!). You might even find your household insurance covers accidental damage anyway.
Have you ever written off a gadget by dropping it?
