I've had my 7100t for about six weeks. I don't use a holster or even screen protectors; I just slip the device into a front pants pocket most of the time on most days. When I'm driving, I often have it on the passenger seat. Last Friday I was getting out of my Trooper with the BB in hand and as I went to slip it in the pocket, I dropped it 3-4 feet onto a concrete drive. It evidently landed on the bottom end because the nicks there are the only damage. Now I'm glad to have a plastic screen, and although the 7100t looks a little less new this week, it still works like new.
