I have now dropped my Sony PRS-350 twice--once from waist height and once out of my coat pocket--and it fell on wood and tile none the worse for wear.
I think the frame has a large part to do with my Sony surviving vs. the JB.
Well, I must have dropped my Jetbook a dozen times over the nearly two years I had it. The plastic cracking is what did it in, not the LCD.
I would have to say that my impression is that both LCD and eInk have approximately the same durability. For each there is a certain set of circumstances that will break them.
