I've dropped my PRS500, twice,
from about 4 feet onto tile floors, it's still ticking. There's an account in the forum of someone losing his off the top of his car at 25 mph, and it surviving with mostly cosmetic damage. It depends a lot
on how they hit. I suspect that there are ways to drop a Kindle, or any of these devices for that matter, from as little as 12 inches and totally disable them, but they're probably very specific
