The NYT's Nick Bilton discovered this sad fact earlier after dropping a Bumper-clad iPhone 4 onto concrete. Thankfully for Nick, the device he was using is a loaner unit from Apple—provided for a review—and not his personal gadget, but the lesson is the same: Be careful, because the odds of any case or wrap preventing the fragile iPhone 4 glass from shattering aren't great.
