    Any non-glass, polycarbonate, or other more durable screen replacements for iPad 2?

    You can technically, but it's easier to just order it with the initial purchase. The caveat is, (and makes total sense), you have to go in to an Apple store to have your device inspected when purchasing Apple Care after the fact. That way you can't break your device within the first thirty days...

    Any non-glass, polycarbonate, or other more durable screen replacements for iPad 2?

    Good questions. Looks like AppleCare+ was introduced in October, right after I purchased my iPad 2. That's why I don't remember the AppleCare "accidental damage replacement", because it didn't exist before AppleCare+ was introduced, and that's why I didn't buy it. Apple's new AppleCare+ lets you...

    Any non-glass, polycarbonate, or other more durable screen replacements for iPad 2?

    I don't think I'm wording this correctly... Apple is implied; we are talking about an iPad after all. But Apple doesn't offer to sell replacement parts for the iPad, including the screen. That leaves only third party manufacturers to create and sell replacement screens. Of the various...

    Any non-glass, polycarbonate, or other more durable screen replacements for iPad 2?

    I think you mean that the technical answer for "Apple products only", is no, because they will only produce glossy glass screens. But the question was, are there any third party manufacturers that create alternate material screens, which is technically quite possible. My Wacom Cintiq has...

    Any non-glass, polycarbonate, or other more durable screen replacements for iPad 2?

    Definitely not durable enough for field use. It's a bummer because this thing is very handy in the field. I reviewed the Applecare program, seems like a good option. I don't remember it having the accidental replacement option when I purchased my iPad. I could be wrong though. Unfortunately...

    Any non-glass, polycarbonate, or other more durable screen replacements for iPad 2?

    Not looking for advice on how I should use my iPad, but thanks anyway. I am also not looking for names of different cases or screen protectors that 'may' work, as I stated in my original post. The one I had failed to help from a two foot drop onto carpet. What's the point of having one then...

    Any non-glass, polycarbonate, or other more durable screen replacements for iPad 2?

    I thought Apple Care didn't cover accidental damage? Even if it did, it won't make the screen any tougher than it is. I'd rather not bring the device in for repair every month or two. I use it as a mobile device and since it doesn't fit in my pocket, it's going to get bumped around a bit. It's...

    Any non-glass, polycarbonate, or other more durable screen replacements for iPad 2?

    I know. I know. That's blasphemy. Whatever. After dropping my iPad while in a thick padded case from two feet up onto soft carpet and shattering the screen, then subsequently shattering the replacement screen I purchased on the final 10 seconds of installation, I'm a little fed up with the...
