After a meeting today I was returning to my desk when my iPad slipped from my grasp and landed face first on one of the wheels of my desk chair. The smart cover was dislodged and when I turned the device over to inspect the damage from the < 3 foot drop I saw the screen was seriously cracked and splintered. I've only owned it for 2 months and a week and when I took it to the local Apple Store they stated that the best they could do was replace the entire iPad for $269. That's more than half the cost of the device. (16gb wi-fi) Does anyone have any alternative suggestions for repair? I understand that the front glass is held on with epoxy or glue of some sort and that's what makes repairing them difficult.
