    Anyone with a iPhone4 have your glass break? I wonder if it's due to the metal frame or something. (thinner glass?)

    =============================================
    Synopsis: SquareTrade analyzed iPhone accidents for over 20,000 iPhone 4s covered by SquareTrade Care Plans and found a 82% increase in reported broken screens compared to the iPhone 3gs.

    Highlights of the study include:
    • iPhone 4 owners reported 82% more damaged screens in the first 4 months compared to iPhone 3gs owners.
    • Overall, the reported accident rate for iPhone 4s was 68% higher than for the iPhone 3gs.
    • An estimated 15.5% of iPhone 4 owners will have an accident within a year of buying their phone.

    Has anyone ever heard of that Gorilla glass that is supposed to be used for electronics such as phones and HDTVs? It's supposed to be lightweight and strong as anything.

    I think Apple should start thinking about putting that on their phones, and other phone carriers as well.
