iPhone 4 slips out of pocket during a sky dive and survives. Glass is broke though.

I know already several iPhone 4 users that broke the glass of the phone when it dropped. This is the big disadvantage of using glass in a handheld product. Apple uses it on the screen and and the backside of the current iPhone. Eventually Apple is reconsidering and gives the next iPhone a more sturdy backside again. The rest of the iPhone is indeed very durable. CNN reports that a skydiver lost his iPhone 4 when jumping out of a plane in 13,500 feet.

Jarrod McKinney was able to find his dropped iPhone via the Find my iPhone function. It landed on a roof of a house about half-mile from his landing place. The glass was broken, but he could still answer a call. The iPhone 4 was inside an Incipio brand case that also broke. Here is a big chance of case makers to proof that their case survives a drop from 13,500 feet and keep the iPhone 4 glass safe.
