    Well, it finally happened. Screen is cracked. Freak accident, like the magic spit in Seinfeld; it seemed to jump out of my pocket onto the concrete driveway. It's happened before, but this time it landed on an inconveniently placed pebble with just enough force.

    Anyway, my question is this. If I were to come across replacement glass, what would you think a reasonable price would be? Iphone glass is cheap (~20), but obviously demand has everything to do with that. What would you think a droid replacement digitizer should go for considering their unavailability?

    Therein lies the problem, dude. No insurance...too many previous claims so they denied me coverage.

    Just to be clear, I have dropped/smashed/smacked this phone in ways that should never happen and it has held up very well. The design is ingenious, with the bezel sticking out slightly higher than the glass surface. I've dropped it face down on brick, concrete, you name it (most of that was during spring break). This was just bad luck, first point of contact was a sharp edge directly onto glass.

    Anyway, I took the plunge and bought the only replacement I could find. At least I get to keep my kick ass hardware. My processor is too stable to let go

    Wow. Sounds like you did well on getting a replacement.
