iPhone 4 Survives Skydiving Drop From 13,500 Feet

iPhone 4 survives skydiving drop

In what is probably the best unintentional marketing campaign for the Incipio iPhone 4 case, an iPhone 4 has survived a fall from 13,500′ after slipping from the pocket of a skydiver.

Amazingly enough the iPhone, pictured above, survived the drop, despite landing on the roof of a building from the height of a plane. Despite suffering a broken enclosure and touchscreen, the phone continues to make and receives phone calls, and was able to be located by using the Find My iPhone feature. The aforementioned Incipio case didn’t make it out alive, but it sounds like it absorbed enough of the impact to let the phone continue to function.

This Pulitzer-quality important news event was reported by CNN.

    Hm. I was thinking about getting the Griffin Survivor case, but after reading this, maybe the Incipio.

    There’s an epoxy that you could use that would meld all of that broken glass together and you could still use it, possibly making it one of the coolest iPhones out there!
    Cool Stuff!!!
