I didn't drop it very far down and it was in it's case. I've had similar "drops" with the iPhone, iPods I've had and various cell phones. Not many. But maybe once a year. It happens. And those have never bricked the devices. So that's what I mean by stable - I really meant durable. I just can't spend $300 to have it work until my first small drop. And I suspect that in four years there will be more durable products. Hey - if this were an iPod I would buy another one very quickly. But at the end of the day with my priorities and daily life, I'm probably still good with real books actually.

I actually didn't think the drop killed it as it continued to work. I think it had something to do with the drop AND not using it for two months.... but what do I know..

Love the ideas of the kindle - but will wait a few generations - it's kind of ugly - the side buttons seem to get in the way from the reviews I've read and the plastic probably does make it even less durable than the Sony...
