    Does it? Or did they finally upgrade it to glass like the rest of the iPod line?

    My "old" 160gig has a glass screen. Don't see why they would change it.

    According to this article from last year, the 120 gig classics "still" use a plastic screen, as to say that the original classic also uses a plastic screen:

    thus im curious to know if the newest third gen classics are still using plastic or if theyve finally went to glass. i can attest to the plastic on the 120 gig models, as mine got scratched quite badly in my pocket.

    The new 160gb iPod Classic, like all Classics before it, has a plastic screen.

    They're plastic, but its nothing a Best Skin Ever or Invisible Shield wouldn't protect.
