So the LCD is 'permanently' glued to the screen, rather than being held in by tabs and screws as in the Incredible? That sucks...

Hopefully someone will start selling the entire front bezel+digitizer assembly.

It's just a bit of adhesive. They are not "permanently' glued / fused together. They can be easily separated.

I think the hardest part is unlatching the ribbon. I tried to repair a broken screen in my previous INC and ended causing permanent damage on the ribbon.
