Just wanted to share my experience. I set my Apad on my table to charge, and tugged on the 3ft short cable a little, and it slid on to the ground for a glorious faceplant. The touchscreen glass shattered. Everything else works though, but I don't know how to skip the calibration during a new flash, so I stopped deving ROMs for now. Hopefully I'll get a shipment next week. I also asked for one from chip3c and was quoted for around $25 after shipping. So yes the Apad is really fragile, but mainly the touchscreen. Everything else is functional!
