Gorilla glass is tough, but it doesn't protect from stupid.
D'Oh!!! I decided to start the week on a healthy note and went for a jog this morning. I find the One X a little too big to jog with comfortably (whether in pocket or worn on arm), so I put it to use in another way... I start the clock app's stopwatch when I leave my house, and hit stop when I get back. Sounds pretty safe, right?
Wrong. With my 5-miler finished, I panted my way back in the house. I picked up the phone. I hit stop on the stopwatch. But between my sweaty hands and post-run shaking, the phone fell out of my hand and landed screen side down onto the hardwood floor. Game over. Gorilla glass is tough, but it doesn't protect from stupid. :/
Lesson learned. Yet again. It's always safer to wrap your phone in a case. If you don't have one yet, click on over to ShopAndroid.com. Seriously. Be smarter than me. Protect your investment.
As for my stop on Android for the Mobile Nations World Tour, I'll take this as a sign that it's time to move on. I have a couple final posts in the hopper. We'll get those posted this week then it'll be time to move on and try out another mobile platform.
