    Is the warranty from Amazon or Apple? Whoever issued the warranty should honour it and I'd speak to them about it. Generally dust particles - if noticeable - do constitute an issue that warrants replacement.

    I find that very interesting how you would have dust between the glass and LCD. Maybe it was a refurbished iPad 2? I don't think that dust could get trapped inside when they manufacture them due to the clean room environment in which they are assembled.

    If it was a used iPad then the warranty will presumably have been offered by the merchant who sold it through Amazon. As you know, Amazon sell some items themselves but they also operate a scheme whereby other merchants can sell through Amazon. So you need to determine whether the iPad came from Amazon or from another merchant (the most likely) and contact that merchant. Apple would, at most, honour the original warranty. It also depends on which country you're in - in some countries the warranty conditions of goods sold 'as new' are legally enforceable, in others they are not.
