If you get a skin for the HP Touchpad that covers the sides, or even a skin for the back cover, wouldn't that help a little?
It sounds like the Hp Touchpad's tiny little strip of plastic near the speakers and ports are giving due to the flex in the back cover, and most people hold in a way that bends it due to the weight of the device and over time, the weak part snaps.
If a skin that covers the full back cover and the sides are placed, it would be like "glue" that may allow for more cohesion? Just a theory, I have yet to try it. It's basically like taping up the entire touchpad's plastic and I think something that's taped up real tight is less likely to break or give because of the reinforcement than something not taped. Like taped ankles for injugries, wires, etc.
The Carbon Fiber VINYL skins are seriously some tough *** covers. They're extremely sticky and strong.
