When I met with Cygnett last night, the reps kept looking at their phones. Why? Because they were waiting for a colleague in Australia to shoot them a video of the first Cygnett iPhone 5 case drop test. They were also waiting to see a video of the first broken iPhone 5.

You see, the iPhone 5 was already available in Australia, and they were shooting a drop test with a naked iPhone 5 and then again with one wrapped in the Cygnett WorkMate iPhone 5 case.

They unpacked the first iPhone 5. Held it high…

And let it go. The iPhone 5 came crashing down onto the concrete and… cracked. Ouch!

Then they did it again with a second phone but this time it was safely tucked into a Cygnett WorkMate case. How did it do? Watch the video and then enter to win one of the first WorkMates!
