So the Smart Cover is to blame? I thought tablet covers were supposed to * protect* the device, not break it. Only Apple could get away with something like this.

... and only a PC elitist would try to get away with this kind of pathetic trolling...

Rubbish article. They really took an assumption and stretched it. I actually thought this had something to do with the weight or design build but guess they were just making stuff up the top of their heads.

It's more than an assumption - Smart Cover attaches to tablet with magnets. iPad 3 is heavier than iPad 1 and 2. Hence, more chance for magnets to slip off.

The weight difference is negligible though. Trying to say the iPad 3 is most breakable device is a terrible assumption based on the magnetized protectors. If they were held in a different case, that argument would be thrown right out the window. That title is just pure link bait as your commenters mentioned.

It is indeed a rubbish article, the problem seems to be the cover and not the ipad itself.

I think all these articles about iPhones iPads breaking so easy are a little blown out of proportion my friend has an iPhone 4 drops it constantly doesn't have a case and has yet to be cracked anything yes it has scratches but it has not shattered nor has crack

How about being extra cautious with a 400 dollars machine , regardless of its durability ?

It shouldnt even be dropping out of those hands enough to have such damages
