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.
