Motion J3400 rugged test videos: drops, water & dust

Any rubber-clad gadget can claim to be rugged, but it takes some preparation to put your shiny new product through MIL-STD-810F ruggedization testing.  It's tough when it's a cellphone; making an entire Tablet PC stand up to the same drops, dust, water and more is quite the challenge.  Still, that's what Motion did with their new J3400 rugged slate, and they've released some of the videos of the testing it endured.
