Apparently, one of the CNET guys has already cracked the screen of his Nexus One. This caused a massive scar and a hideous purple shade to overtake the once glorious AMOLED screen. CNET took the phone to HTC support, who told them it could have cracked when sat down-on while wearing a pair of tight-fitting jeans.

“People sometimes forget that they don't go in pockets,” said HTC. Excuse me? A smartphone that doesn't go in pockets?

I've had my Nexus One since January, with no issues whatsoever yet. If my screen cracks due to deadly pocket wear, at least I know HTC will fix it for around 180 quid. Fantastic. It's great to know that HTC's willing to fix my phone for more than it cost me to buy if normal pocket wear-and-tear breaks it. That's reassuring.
