    Ipad 2, does it scratch easily?

    I wonder if the ipad 2 screen will scratch easily. Can't wait for someone on youtube to test it out. I know the screen is a little thinner than Ipad 1.
    I hope the screen is like the iphone. My 3gs is bullet proof and my keys are always rubbing up against it.

    Zagg is already producing their shield

    for it. I've mine on order and it will probably beat my iPad2 to my door. Had one on my iPad since day 1 and it's just about bullet proof.

    Yeah,but i dont want any shields, plastic, covers, or cases. Just all natural for me. . Those shields remind me of my grandmas couches. I say USE it and dont try to save it.

    It's glass. If you scratch a harder material against it, like metal, eventually it will abrade.

    The iphone is also made of glass and the iphone is scratch resistant even against metal keys. I am just curious to see if it is made of the same glass as the iphone.

    Just use a microfiber cloth for cleaning and you'll be fine. I cleaned my original iPad screen at least 5 times a day, every day for 11 months. I just sold it and the screen was in brand new condition. The new screen is the same glass and coating, no worries.

    i quite like the idea of a 'used' or 'weathered' feel to it. my Touch of 3 or 4 years ago is buggered on both sides, and looks kinda cool. still works perfectly of course. like my guitars - quite warn and very well used.

    I don't know what type of glass they use but it is glass and glass does not scratch easily. Now 15 people are going to say I'm wrong, but they don't. That's why in the old days when vision glasses were made out of glass we never worried about what we cleaned them with. No scratches. The plastic ones now all scratch easily despite the "scratch proof" coating they put on them

    I was just thinking that the screen seems to stay cleaner on the 2 than it did on the 1. I had it since Friday night and I haven't cleaned it yet. Anyone else seeing this?
