    I want to put a Moshi iVisor AG Screen protector on my iPad 1. No one has them in stock, but they do have the new iPad 2 version readily available.
    Can I use the iPad 2 version on my iPad 1?
    Will it fit ? Will I have to modify at all ?
    Is the home button in the same location?
    I don't really care that it will have a hole for the camera.
    I just want to make sure it will fit.

    It'll work, but you will get an unprotected border on the outside of the screen protector. This is because the iPad 2 "screen bezel" is slightly smaller than the original iPad.

    Ok so I received the Moshi today. It is for an iPad 2, but it fit perfectly on my iPad1. I have an Otterbox Commuter case on my iPad and after I installed the Moshi I put the Otterbox back on and it looks flawless.
    The AG works great but it does affect the screen display a little. But it doesn't bother me.
    I like the look and especially the feel of the AG coating. Nice and slippery and it doesn't show fingerprints like the plain iPad screen does.
    Easy to clean also. It's a little pricey but worth it IMO.
