First off, you have to realize that this study was done by SquareTrade, which sells warranties. That said, their study found that there's an 82% increase in broken screens in the iPhone 4 compared to the iPhone 3GS. Part of the problem is that now there's twice as much surface area to break. Hard to know what to make of this report, but it does suggest a protective case would be  good idea.
