Funny how one person posts a story, and the entire tech-loving Internet picks it up. Turns out that the Boy Genius dropped his BlackBerry Bold over the weekend. Nevermind the fact that he actually has one. He says it happened while opening his trunk, and that it was from two feet high. Unless he has a smart car, then no, it was higher than two feet. And guess what? It cracked. That’s usually what happens when an electronic device meets asphalt. So a ton of articles pop up on various blogs, asking if the Bold can really hold up. The moral of the story (and BG agrees): get a skin for your BlackBerry. And not just the Bold. Or, at least, if you don’t get a skin, don’t complain when you drop the thing and it breaks. If you want to see the damage for yourself, head over to the photo gallery. It actually doesn’t look all that bad.
Your BlackBerry broke when you dropped it? You don’t say.
