Default All Blackberry's aren't built the same.

Well, my 8100 had an 'incident' today and is still alive and working.

I was up on 7 tiers (35 feet) of scaffolding and while reaching for something I caught a glimps of something falling to the ground, My Blackberry! So I immediately thought that I would need to go and get a new phone but when I got down and looked at it, it still worked. My bosses 8100 fell 2 feet onto a pine (softwood) floor and died, a friend's 8800 fell out of his lap while exiting his car (1 1/2 feet) and fell on concrete and died. Mine falls 35 feet onto compacted gravel (driveway) and lives. I don't get it, but am thankful I don't have to buy a new one.

Is it possible that they are just built differently ?

Also, Where is the best place to buy a complete housing ? and can you get all the parts ? (case, side rails, screen cover, etc..)
