And before you ask, yes, my one year old has a wp7 device and can use it to some extent. He dropped it off of the balcony at a hotel we're at and it landed flat on the concrete below missing the pool by mere inches. Thusfar, I see no scratches on the device and the only discernible fault from a second story fall is a looser power button that is still perfectly functional. I was scared to drop test mine, so it's cool to know it can take a beating.

Thats pretty good, probably fared off much better than if the 1 year old being drop tested from the same place.

how did he manage to toss something from two stories up, without you stopping him ?

more importantly, how did you manage to see how it landed if you weren't close enough to prevent the toss ?

i don't care what you let your kids play with, expense is relative. today's $800 phone is tomorrows paperweight with them being released so fast. our kids play with iPhones and G1's all the time.

or the G4 laptop hooked up to a 20" mac monitor in the other room. a few years ago that was $3 large. today, it's a craiglist hard to sell item !

Balcony has 4 ft railing, it's safe. I was out there on it too and just couldn't stop it. He was watching some kids movie, and it fell out of his hands. Not so much a toss.

Lol I've never found any of his posts questionable, he doesn't seem like the type of user who would post for dramatic effect like some of these troll posts. I do want pictures though just to see how the power button looks. The thread title makes it all worth it though.

^ pics or it didn't happen. He saws he has all these devices and never post a pic. He asked us what pics we want in another thread, and he never provided them. He's full of it.

It takes 10 seconds to snap and post a pic. So stop spamming the board with bogus claims. Pics or it didn't happen.

I've bought like 15 devices in the past 2 years, I'm not saying whether he does or doesn't have the devices, but it isn't out of the ordinary if he does. A lot of developers, Schapman for one, post some crazy things and you guys don't ask for pictures lol. Give him a break dude. I've never understood the whole "pics or it didn't happen" theory. It's a forum, whether he does or doesn't makes no difference, his post is positive and doesn't hurt anybody.

I only have a titan, a dvp, and a lumia 800 on me. No computer atm, does board express allow you to upload pictures to the forum? If so I'll go buy it.

Either that or I could email the pictures. I'd upload them but I dont even know what uploaded to use. Pic uploading isn't an integral part of my life.

I tried in the second pic to get an image of the looseness of the button, but it's fairly flush with the side so that's a challenge.

Yep. Good job vetvito -.-
