I am so torn between the iPhone and the Touch. One of the major issues driving me to the iPhone (but certainly not the only reason) is the back panel. On the iPhone it is a really nice grey matte finish which appears that it would withstand a lot of use with no signs of wear. The Touch however has the mirror finish back like all iPods which looks like it will withstand no use at all. For me the appearance of the gadget is a very important part of the whole experience. Having a nasty back panel would bother me alot. Is there a way to keep the Touch's back panel looking like new? Is putting it in a case from day one all that would be required? I am at a loss as to why Apple makes the iPod back panels out of this material, surely I can't be the only one to have this opinion? Also what about the screen? It seems to be very scratch resistant but would a screen protector still be advisable? My friend has one on his iPhone and it reduces the fingerprinting a lot. Anyway assuming I got a Touch how could I keep it in mint condition?
