    Water damage

    Hey, does anyone know how well this would resist a few drops of water or another liquid that would accidentally get on it. Im not talking about being submerged. Do you think the rubber around the screen would keep out a few drops?

    Also, is there a water damage indicator in the headphone jack spot like the touch/iphone?

    Just curious to see if anyone knows about this. And yes, ive seen the pc world stress test lol

    You can navigate with coffee!

    I haven't seen anything more than the PC world stress tests. So I don't have any more info on the iPad's tolerance for water/moisture.

    But the whole idea of any water/liquid getting on iPad scares me. I would play it safe and try to keep your coffee cup at least a foot away.

    My brother sent me a hilarious commercial about this, sort of. I will try to find it and give a link, but I did not want to post it as it is inappropriate for some viewers

    The video is at unique daily and is called disappointed iPad developers. I thought it was real at first, then cracked up.

    OMG why didn't I think of this earlier. I have an Otterbox defender series case for my iPhone and man those things are tough and very water resistant.

    And now of course coming soon from Otterbox... Apple iPad Case :: Coming Soon! // OtterBox.com

    Should be good in water since we now know we can blend with it.
