iPad and Nexus 7 go for a drop, dive, and swim

If you’re offended by mindless device torture, don’t read on.


I don’t quite understand people who microwave or try to ‘blend’ gadgets and then post the footage on YouTube. Happily following in these footsteps are the people over at SquareTrade, who have decided to pit the new iPad and Nexus 7 in a series of ‘torture tests’.

From shoulder-high drops to table dives to a final dip in a bathtub, the two tablets go head to head to see who fairs out better. It’s hardly a fair comparison in my opinion, but it’s still a great watch for some mindless tablet destruction.
