Where can you get a replacement digitizer screen? My grandson dropped his a couple days ago & I don't want to spend another $200 for a new one.

I am seeing replacement screen/digitizers for these now on ebay. With a little searching around I found one direct ship from Hong Kong for $70US. Good Luck!
