The iPad mini races the Nexus 7 towards a cold, hard surface in drop tests

We have seen the early reviews of the iPad mini. We have seen the teardowns. Soon we will be seeing a weird guy who would want to blend this thing. Till then we have a couple of drop tests to keep us company.

The latest fad in the world of technology coverage are drop tests that drop new devices from various angles to see how well they hold up (or don’t). While the jury is still out on the accuracy of these tests, they do help paint a picture of how well your future (or present) device will fare after hurtling towards the Earth at 9.81 m/s2.

We have two videos for you today. The first one is from Android Authority where they drop the iPad mini along with the Nexus 7 three times to see which one takes the least damage. The second one is from SquareTrade, where they also add the bigger iPad with Retina display to their drop tests and then also dip all three in water in the end.

I’m not going to spoil the ending for you guys. You can check out both videos below.
