    like the subject line says the black on the bevel is coming off exposing silver beneath. considering it's a black ipad that's a problem. what's more disturbing is now a sliver of screen is now silver too. can't tell if it's even still responsive at that point of the screen. i'm new to ipad's though not new to apple devices (iphone and ipod touch). i find this really disturbing.

    i see why the black is coming off. i assume it's like paint but why the hell would the screen color come off. and what i'm afraid of is once it's started it will get worse and worse just like how when paint chips it starts to chip more and more.

    The paint on the screen is applied to the back of glass. The only way that would come off is if someone tried to pry the screen off or some sort of paint removing liquid got inside.

    i was keeping it in my fanny pack whenever i went out with it. i'm washing my fanny pack to make sure it doesn't have something bad in residue form there.

    Since it has been less than 90 days since you bought your iPad, you're still covered by the 90 days of free telephone technical support. Why not give Apple a call and see what they say, especially about the black coming off from the screen.
