BROKEN Sony PRS-700
I broke my PRS-700
The touchscreen is totally ruined, but the device itself works perfectly (I was removing the touchscreen to clean dust from beneath it).
(wow, the e-ink screen looks so much better without the touchscreen!)
The PRS-700 can't be controlled without the touchscreen, so to get any use out of it you will need to replace the touchscreen. I suppose you could use the other parts for other things. I believe a replacement touchscreen can be bought for around US$120.
If anyone is interested in taking it off my hands, make a reasonable offer. I'd prefer to sell through eBay.
I live in Australia, so there will be some shipping costs, maybe $15 to $20. I'd just like to recoup some of the cost of the replacement Kindle I just ordered.
The device itself is less than 1 year old and in good condition. The little fake card that came in the SD card slot is missing (I always had a 2GB SD card in there, and can include it with the device for an extra few dollars) and the stylus is broken.
Alternatively, if anyone knows a cheap source for a replacement touchscreen I could maybe fix it myself and keep it.

I'd be curious to see what a 700 looks like without the touch screen-care to post pictures?
