HTC tweet teases that a repair service is coming for cracked displays
Taiwanese manufacturer HTC has sent out a tweet, apparently promoting a screen repair service that will soon be revealed. The text that accompanied the picture below reads "If only broken hearts were this easy to fix. Details 2/18." On Tuesday, we should know the rest of the details. Will HTC offer quick screen repairs, or will it offer to give out loaners to those whose smartphone screen is shattered?

The tweet comes from HTC's U.S. Twitter feed, which should mean that whatever new service HTC announces on Tuesday, it will be made available to U.S. based owners of HTC branded handsets. Replacing a cracked screen is one of the most common repairs done on a smartphone. HTC's current flagship, the HTC One, uses Corning's Gorilla Glass to protect the 4.7 inch glass panel from your butterfingers.

As we said, HTC will be revealing what this tweet is all about on Tuesday. As soon as we know, you'll know.

My guess is that the next HTC M8 will have a removable front glass panel or entire screen for easy slip and play fixing.

That'd be awesome but goes against everything that is a unibody design.

Are they going to offer a service that makes sure that The HTC product you bought isn't a lemon that needs to be exchanged 4 times before you get one with a flaw that is livable with but still not ideal compared to handsets from other companies?
