The point is that the iPhone is way tougher than I thought. In the famous ‘Blend it’ series, the guy puts a brand new iPhone into the blender and starts it. Now, watch the video carefully.

This video is a lot more powerful in displaying iPhone’s toughness than the PCWorld test where the guy drops the phone from 6 feet high.
