    So obviously the screen size of the two iPads is identical, but is the bezel the same as well? I'm just wondering if I'll be able to use iPad 1 screen protectors on my new iPad 2. I live overseas so it might be a while before any iPad 2 accessories are out on the market.

    Yes. I have one on mine. But you'll have to use a hole punch on it for the front camera. Also I am using the first apple case and cut a hole in the back for the camera. Works well until the iPad 2 cases get in stock.

    Thanks. Although technically it shouldn't matter whether there's a hole for the front-facing camera anyway since the protector is transparent. I guess maybe the clarity might be affected a little bit, but good thing the camera sucks to begin with. :)

    I plan to take the PS antiglare from my ipad1 and put on my ipad2 without cutting a hole. Hopefully it won't affect the clarity. I don't want to have a jagged hole which would ruin the cover.
