Guys... just stumbled over this, and since three Colleagues and I have got a TouchPad 32GB last month I checked mine and let them check theirs, too. All of us have the original HP case and never take it out. No cracks at all. I'm from Germany, so maybe it's a Problem with some of the shipments?
I own a Pre (-), too and dropped it last year from at least 1.5 meters on concrete ground. It received a dent, but no cracks at all.
Some years ago, my phone handset in the Office started to crack up at the Edges and the cracks started to grow over the weeks. Strangely enoug, my Colleagues noticed the same on their phones. Turned out that our cleaning service was using some industrial glass cleaner witch contained ammoniac in a quite high dose to clean them, which dried out the plastic and let it shrink.
Just an idea...
