    If you can be patient, you can probably get a replacement digitizer sometime soon from someplace like repairsuniverse.com. They just don't have acer parts right now but for comparison, an iPad replacement digitizer is $109 or so. Maybe better than buying a whole new unit. I'm sure the replacement procedure is hairy...I know when I replaced the digitizer on my venerable Dell Axim, I basically had to completely disassemble the thing...it's a wonder it worked when I got it back together!

    I second the motion for hi-res pics of the inside of your wounded soldier!

    If you can't wait for a screen replacement to become available, try selling it on ebay for parts. I'm sure someone will grab it.

    I did the same thing on my iPhone when they first came out.
    Take it to one of those shops that repairs phones/laptops, if they can't do it, they probably know who can.
    I think it cost $75 for the digitizer and they didn't warranty anything including the repair.
    Plus it's good to have a hook-up at one of those places, they can fix/hack anything and usually have a butt load of software they will install for a nominal fee.

    It's complicated, I remember they had to take a mini torch to my iPhone to melt some of the adhesive.
    A lot of these devises aren't mean for repairs.

    I know, snApple, but I don't have it it anymore, gave it to the gf and got a G2.

    Same with my droid x. But I'm gonna take a stab in the dark and say that this is a much bigger issue than an iphone and we are all waiting for a company to produce said digitizier.

    I have the same misfortune. I just got off the phone with Acer Support 1-800-816-2237 and they are now doing replacement glass. The cost is $199+Tax.
    Lucky for me my MasterCard has retail purchase protection and they will be reimbursing me for the repair since it happened within 90 days of purchase.

    Thanks brian72.I asked Acer for the price but they did not give it to me before seeing the tablet.199$ is not cheap but what choice did I have.Also I want to thank all the people that responde on my problem - not all with a solution but instead with kind words.Thank you all.

    Your other solution is to go buy another one for immediate use, then when the supply of replacement parts become available at that time replace the broken glass-digitizer panel. I know with the iPhones -iPads it took about 6 months for the replacement parts to become available.

    Unhappy

    i broke the glass today dropped a500 to hard floor. screen works still fine but there are spider web lines from the edge. even multi-touch works, so it is just the topmost layer which is broken. i wonder if it is possible to replace it, or fix somehow.

    Here is the picture:

    Ouch...

    Any chance of pictures?

    What ever it costs, I suggest its going to be MORE than a SquareTrade warranty. My SqTrade warranty cost
    89 bucks with Accidental Damage coverage for 3 years. See image from my confirm letter.

    It can happen folks. And it won't always be your fault, but since you use it most, there is just as good a
    chance it will be your fault.
