Do iPad 1 screen protectors fit on iPad 2?

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.
