Yes it is repairable but you might find it a bit expensive unless you have insurance. Try a Telecom dealer they should know more.

s.joseph: wouldnt a screen cost more than the actual device

Most of the time.. Yes it is more expensive, but for a device which retails for $999 it could be worth it.

It should only cost you around $55 for a quote, but for an idea i have seen one with a quote of $450.
The downside for you is yours could very well be more than that because you can hear that rattle and the device doesn't always turn on.
The upside though, that quote was through MFR and now Telegistics are accepting all models and these guys tend to be cheaper!!

What has broken, just the touchscreen digitizer or the whole LCD Screen and the touchscreen digitizer? Either or both can be repaired but obviously just the digitizer is cheaper.

This site has a good description on how to tell what has broken. They also offer to fix it or just sell you the kit if you're brave and want to attempt it yourself. I haven't managed to break my screen yet though so can't vouch for the quality or value of their service.

Of course, getting it repaired locally is going to be faster, and possibly cheaper but it's nice to have options if the local guys are going to charge an arm and a leg.
