    I have two sets of the Power Support anti-glare screen protector, which is the best I've seen (believe me, I've tried a few). I would LIKE to use them with the new iPad 2. It think there is an ever-so-slightly width/height difference between the two devices. No biggie, I can trim, if necessary. But I was just wondering if anyone could shed some further light on this...could someone use a current screen protector/shield with the iPad 2? Not sure if this has been brought up before here...

    Mind the camera lens location

    and be prepared to cut a hole for it. I use a Zagg shield on my iPad1 and love that but will hold for the proper measurements when I receive the iPad2. No rush.

    Isn't the screenprotector see-through?

    In my opinion, the best ones are the anti-glare, which are not entirely see-through.

    Even the glossy ones will tend to cause a slight problem with the camera because of the glue that holds them on. A hole shouldn't be too hard to cut, and it you use a punch you can make it pretty clean.

    These are actually held in place by vacuum seal and not glue however the screen protector would still act as a second lens over the camera and therefore have a diminished impact on photo quality. From the reports of the camera quality though, it may not have much bearing on the final image.
