Actually, will the 700w inside it survive a drop?

I am considering the skinned case with the holster. My typical cell phone drops happen indoors and from a distance of 3 - 4 feet.

Does the skin offer any real protection or is it more for if I slide it on a counter, that it wont scratch the treo itself?

Again, I am not planning on throwing the treo on the ground, but if I open my car door & the treo falls onto the ground, will the Siedo case offer any protection?

Right now, I am using my old Tmobile sidekick pouch but that is a very temporary solution. I was waiting to buy stuff until my 2 week trial ran out at verizon but I love the treo so much, I dont need any more time to figure it out.
