I was just wondering - they say the iPod touch has the same display as the iPhone - does this include the glass protective layer? That's one thing I always found annoying with past iPods - they scratch up so easily.

Any thoughts? There's no mention of it on the iPhone or iPod pages.

This is exactly what i want to know before ordering one.

I wish this had HDD instead of flash but i guess battery life was a concern.

No guarantees, but I would guess that it is glass with the anti-scratch coating. Apple isn't stupid... they know that you're gonna have your fingertips on it constantly. And Steve did mention that it's the same screen as the iPhone, so to me, that implies that the coating would be the same as well.

well they were stupid enough to put the standard shiny scratch magnet chrome back that the ipod has on the ipod touch. they didn't do that to the iphone. why to this...
