I dropped my Centro on Halloween on the hard street and nothing happened. This is the 4th or 5th time I have dropped it on a hard surface without a problem. It is by for the most indestructible Palm I have ever used. I broke the screens on my first 3 or 4 Palms and then started using a variety of cases. I ended up with a hard and soft case for each Palm that I had. I have used 3 different kinds of cases with my Centro and found problems with each: slow getting out of pocket, harder to use phone, etc. I finally stopped using cases about 6 months ago. Every time I drop my Centro I cringe, yet I have never damaged my phone. It is an indestructible little booger.
