properly encased cell phones withstand drops everyday. not knowing what type of protection the ruggedized version has, it's difficult to assume what it can or can't withstand.
one would surmise from the term "ruggedized" that it would have at least some extra form or protection that would shrug off drops and the like better than the standard version.
i'm still interested to see how it comes out. i doubt it will change my mind, but will check it out nonetheless.
