IMHO that's a stress fracture from holding that corner while you tap the screen with your right hand. Just imagine holding the plastic frame and then pushing the opposite corner until it broke. Where would you expect to see the plastic break ?

Maybe HP will put up a temporary app to give us all free bumbers, and then erase all mentions of it so they can pretend it never happened.
If the failure rates in this thread are acurate, HP will have to do another production run to replace all of these broken frames.
