Dropped my Nexus 7 about two feet this morning and it landed pretty softly, I thought. Glass cracked, screen works, but the touch screen doesn't work. This sucks for several reasons. The main one is that it costs between $110 and $170 bucks to replace. On a $250 device. (I can get a new one with 8GB for $200.) A lesser reason is that there's no way for me to wipe it (as far as I can tell) since I can't interact with it.
The glass on the Nexus 7 is terrible. Within a month of owning it, I had scratches on it. I don't use kid gloves on these things, but I'm not abusive at all. Today's catastrophic drop was really quite mild.
