Broken Palm Treo 650This $400 Palm Treo handheld was dropped once. Note the cracked case around the LCD. While minor, the crack was perfectly placed to scratch one's cheek whenever talking on the phone.
In addition to the cracked faceplate, the phone also suffered a broken antenna. A genuine replacement housing from Mobile Brando (Hong Kong) cost $50, but retained every detail from the factory unit (including the Cingular logo).
