    Hi everyone,

    I have a PlayBook that is a little more than a year old. I have accidently dropped it on the floor and the screen is somewhat cracked. It stil works well and all but hate the look of the cracked screen in the corner. Now, I have a question. Is there anything that I can do? I have tried to get some help at Future Shop where I got it but did not get an answer. Is there anywhere where I can get another screen and put it together myself?


    Thank you in advance!

    Just the other day someone asked a similar question and there were answers. One suggestion is to make sure you get a one-piece assembly as there is some metal frame glued to the glass and it can be a pain separating the melding together again.

    Or possibly get a case that covers the corners of your Playbook?

    I have the Q10 and I love it. I do not like touch screen that mouch. I find that Q10 has the best of both worlds, a physical keyboard and a touch screen.

    How refreshing that this hijacker actually had good things to say.

    Great advice. Replace an "obsolete" 7 inch 64 GB tablet with a 5 inch 16 GB phone that may well be obsolete six months from now, and the phone only costs $500 or so more than the tablet costs. As to the OP's original question, see here, though it may not be truly a job for novices. Replacement LCD Glass Digitizer Touch Screen w Tools for Blackberry Playbook New | eBay

    Yeah, but it's her thread, and it's a little hard to hijack one's own thread.

    Somebody else introduced the Z30 phone into the thread and you, Diegonel, agreed with that. She simply said she liked the one with the keyboard. Hijack?
