I think the argument is that it's insiderably lessikely, not that it's possible or that people buy covers because they think their iPhone will scratch like their Curve.

It would seem to me that a device should be designed to handle occasional accidents though, even if it is as much as once a year. My iPhone didn't fare nearly as well as my previous phones and iPods have. Concrete (or marble or asphalt, etc.) isn't some very obscure surface that no one is ever around.

I made the mistake of not replacing the case soon after I quit using one that tore, a silicone case might have been enough. But I never used cases on my previous phones, rarely used them on my nanos.

Heh heh!

I bought one so that there was much less chance of it getting scratched.

I already admitted that they can scratch. It's just difficult.
Though I will allow that you're a scratch magnet.

I would believe that everyone drops their iPhones, you get some dings and scratches on the body of the phone, but few people have scratched screens.

It's been a while since I've seen such a chart, but if memory serves, yes a great fraction of it is games. And yet I must state again: if the pie is very large (is there any doubt this is true with respect to the iPhone app store?) and a large fraction of it is something you consider "junk", then you can rest assured that there are a great number of people that disagree with your assessment.

What part of "free market" and "consumer" is it that you don't understand? Surely you don't think that your own reaction to everything is always in lockstep with the majority of people.
