iPhone 4 screen smashed in first drop test

Apple’s new iPhone 4 isn’t even on sale yet, but it’s already been put through a series of drop tests.  iPhone repair site iFixyouri managed to get an iPhone 4 (minus the motherboard inside) and dropped it from pocket height (3.5 feet).  The good news?  It survived two drops.  The bad news?  On the third fall, a loud popping sound was heard, and the phone’s glass front was smashed to bits.

iFixyouri comments that the new phone’s construction – essentially two pieces of glass with aluminum sandwiched in between – made it particularly vulnerable compared to earlier iPhones, which had a slightly recessed glass screen surrounded by a chrome bezel.
