Drop Test: Nexus 7 vs New iPad

We still don’t know yet of the Nexus 7 will blend, but thanks to the warranty folks at SquareTrade I can tell you that it’s sturdier than the new iPad.

SquareTrade drop the Nexus 7 from waist height and they also shoved it off the edge of a bench. In both cases the Nexus 7 survived with minimal scuffing, while the iPad had serious screen damage. I must say that I’m surprised. Given how heavily engineered the iPad is, I would have expected it to do much better.
