Welcome back to another installment of the Good e-Reader Drop Test! Today we check out the Barnes and Noble Simple Touch Reader and see how it holds up against common drops!
The first test we conduct is the simple pocket miss. Often, when you are meaning to put it in your pocket or purse, you may miss and drop it. We simulate this event and see what kind of damage occurs from three feet. The next stage of tests occur at the five foot level. We drop it on the back, side and directly on the screen. Some noticeable damage does occur and some parts go flying off! Want to know how it did, check out the video below.
