Problem with the construction of the Palm Pre

As far as functions on the Palm I have no problem.  But as much as I try to baby it and keep it in the case and from being bumped or anything..This is the second phone that has cracked on the side. 1st time it started right by the plug and continued over the screen little by little.  Second time it started at the top.  I have never dropped the phone.  I think with the sides may be weak and to fragile.

Anyone else have this problem?

I have read about this problem a lot on Precentral. Sometimes it starts at the USB port, sometimes the top.


Some users there have recommended a GRT case to protect the sliding mechanism. I wonder if a heavy-duty case like that would also help prevent stress cracks. ???
