Ipad1 is durable as a Moro. Mine has dropped several times, in the apple case or targus truss case, on it's back, face down, etc.. No problems, no scratches, no dents, no anything. iPad still wrks n looks as if it's brand new. These are some tough glass used on ipad1. I would think ipad2 glass more liable to break cuz it's a lot thinner., regardless If same type of glass used as in ipad1. Unless they used some newer steonfpger type of glass to allow it to be thinner and stronger, the thicker glass will always win.

I swung a roofing hammer as hard as I could at my ipad 2, hit it dead center of the screen........ no breakage.... ever so slight scratch.
I have a WP7 by Samsung [the Focus] and it has Gorilla Glass. I am not surprised to hear that the IP2 has Gorilla Glass. When my iP2 arrives [supposed to be the EOM or so since I am getting it from an Apple Authorized Reseller, nearest Apple Store is 50 miles away], I plan to only use the Apple Black Leather cover. [the one with the magnets] The GGlass works well on my phone.
I can imagine your heart skipped a beat or so. The engineer in me wants a bit more info about how it landed ... if possible.
- Did it land flat on back or face?
- Did it hit on a corner or full length on one of the edges?
- Did it fly a bit and drop with a glancing blow ... vs ... a straight vertical drop?
Really curious. Thanks
And...you suppose Apple's R&D staff didn't think of doing something like that before giving the green light to go ahead and order a bazillion screens?Originally Posted by SporkLover

It was a complete accident. I was watching a youtube video on how to install new shingles on a roof, and was just wasn't paying much attention to the roofing action.
Now I have a scratch on my iPad2 and my roof is no longer water proof.
