Hi, I just pre-ordered the new iPad, which will be my very first iPad! I already own and iPhone 4, and I had a screen protector on it until the Apple store guy told me that the glass on the iPhones are scratch resistant, and I was safe with a case that had a lip over the edge to keep the surface elevated. He was pretty correct, because the only damage my iPhone has encountered in 8 months is a mystery chip (honestly have NO idea how it happened, but I got over it) and a recent hair line scratch that isn't noticeable at all. I'm assuming the iPad glass is the same as the iPhone, which will make it pretty durable. I've seen a few comments in threads about dust from Smart Covers causing scratches on people's iPad screens? I'm just wondering how likely that is, because I want to buy a screen protector (Particularly the Ultra Optics from spigen: http://www.spigen.com/tablets/apple...g-wifi-screen-protector-steinheil-series.html) but I'd rather wait for reviews to see how well it fits with snap on back covers, because I'm the sort of person who absolutely cannot handle bubbles in screen protectors! I just don't want my Smart Cover scratching up my glass before I can get my hands on a decent screen protector.
