Reporter breaks an 'unbreakable' mobile phone at CES

BBC News - Reporter breaks an 'unbreakable' mobile phone at CES


This one made me LOL pretty hard. Feel bad for the guy though, probably a small start-up company with a lot (also personal) of cash riding on the success of the phone.

But still...HAHAHA, worst scenario possible for them. :crackup:

(Murphy is always lurking :D)

LOL, if you find a way to break it they give you it for free? They can't be serious on that, I'm sure there are a thousand of ways to do so, just some easy examples:

fire, acids, crashes, big lasers (lol)....

haha...classic!:crackup::crackup:

The reporters face when he realises he has broken it made me laugh...:D

an 'unbreakable' phone is a pretty bold claim to make though...

Hallucynogenyc - you're right, there must be loads of ways, microwaves and EMP would surly finish it also...:thinking:

Oh yeah, but microwaves and other EMF of sufficient power can destroy pretty much anything without good metal shielding, something that would be pretty tough to implement in the phone. :beer:

I think they are referring to the phone being physically unbreakable...then again, that obviously isn't the case. :D

I think it broke because he was hammering away on the screen - the weakest part. Most accidents involve it dropping on a corner and it is very unlikely the screen itself will ever hit anything. A 10 story fall is stretching it.

lawl - I'm pretty sure they mean realistic accident-related breakages. Acids don't work well on rubber or plastic anyway. And most citizens don't have large lasers.

well... I'm sure the phone is more durable than any other phone on the market today.....

who knows, shock-resistant doesn't mean time-resistant. I had a shock resistant watch that lasted some months only.

I guess this phone will work great for people working at factories and so...

That phone looks like a POS. Reminds me of an old Nextel brick. They couldnt give it to me.

Haha agreed, but if it was actually as rugged as advertised I would love one for snowboarding and downhill biking. "indestructible" phones can be quite useful...when they are actually tougher than a normal Nokia..
