    VIDEO: How Much Torture Can A BlackBerry Take?

    Advertisement



    So yesterday, most of you remember that we were asking for ideas on what we could to an 8703 that we had an OtterBox for, and the ideas, well, were more than creative.

    For those of you who didn't see that post, we have an OtterBox for the 87 series devices that has just been sitting around in the office collecting dust, so we decided, "Hey, why not see how good it really is?".

    The best thing is, we video taped our findings.

    We are started off with 3 BlackBerry 8703's and 1 OtterBox, which are shown below:

    The following are the tests that we put these devices through...

    8703 (With OtterBox)
    VS
    An Elevator Door


    8703 (1 With, 1 Without OtterBox)
    VS
    A Flight Of Stairs


    8703 (With OtterBox)
    VS
    A Mud Puddle

    Trying to figure out why the H3 one isn't showing up, so working on that. ***EDIT*** its working now...

    Also, the amazing thing is, the 8703 that was OtterBox protected, actually still works. Changed out the screen and it came back to life. Very interesting.

    They'll survive...We are trying to think of more creative things we can do it...Missed the UPS driver coming by today...

    All we can say is, when we finally decide to end the "Torture-Berry" series, it will go out "with a bang"...

    Send it to me and I'll throw it in the volcanic eruption. We'll see if it can survive that

    Unforunately, being in TN, we don't have access to volcanoes...However, we are currently deciding how we can create our own little "eruption" in the parking lot.
