I'd say they won't be significantly more or less robust than all other eInk screens, as long as they're still on glass substrate. I can't imagine how a touch- or light-layer put on the front of the display could possibly stop the back from breaking. All display breaks look like this already, you never see any damage on the front, that's why people come here to ask "huh what happened to my display now?"

It's too bad really as a unbreakable screen would've been a huge leg up over the competition, but apparently these displays aren't available in numbers or in the price range required?

Maybe in another 2 years
