    Any one else excited about this? A 0.4mm thin/thick glass protector for the new iPad. I had used their glass protector for iPhone and I think its great!

    Just ordered one for my iPhone. Heard it was great! Am also excited for this to come to the iPad!!

    Except the iPhone one is pretty expensive ($27) I wonder how much this one will be?

    Man, I tried to install a screen protector on my iPad 2, and it was a nightmare. Lots of dust under the screen protector, and trying to get it out was a pain in the ass. I can't imagine what this will be like. :eek:

    Let me recommend the iVisor if you're still looking for a solution to that problem.

    I would not recommend this Glas.t since it is VERY hard to install without any dust and you will end up with bubbles. You only get ONE try to put on and this costs $50+ and there is compatibility issues with cases.

    I guess you have a naked iPad then this would be no problem...

    it does feels nice though.

    P.S. go search on YouTube, most of them end up with so much bubbles on their screen of their iPhone, its not even funny. (since wasted $50+).

    Still cant figure out why so many get dust under the Glas.t

    I cleaned the iphone screen thoroughly, peel it very close to the phone and facing down, move into place over the target, one last light blow of air and drop.

    No dust at all.

    I will get the Glas.t for ipad when it comes out. Worth a shot as I really like the feel of the one on my iphone.

    I do agree that these are hopelessly overpriced and should include 2.

    I would imagine that the iPhone version of Glas.t is easier to install than the iPad given the larger screen size.

    Anyway, good luck! :D

    I have one for my iPhone and you know what I thought about it and don't think i'll get this for my new ipad. It works great so far on my iphone, no problems protecting the screen, though I do have some bubbles, not too annoying, but I have the applecare plus and the ipad will be in a case so even if it does drop and crack as much as this screen protector will cost I might as well use it towards the replacement instead and enjoy the ipad screen as it was intended.

    I think this has the potential to be the best screen protector even with it's high price point. If installation can be made easier and safer.

    Huh?

    Emailed Spigen before this was announced. However, I just recived this email.
    Wait I'm confused. Correct me if I'm wrong *Sarcastic* but I'm almost positive that the iPad 2 and the iPad had the same screen size and dimensions.

    Long term I have heard nothing negatives. I really think its more of a gimmick but this is just my opinion and I am not trying to insult anyone.

    Recheck your comment. Why would it insult unless you are missing words?

    It's not that confusing. They're in the process of creating one for the new iPad. Since the iPad2 is an older version, they are not focusing production for it anymore. They're just being technical....because me and you both know that the new iPad and the older iPad2 are the same screen size thus, both can utilize the Glas.t.

    So when it comes out, go ahead and order it, whether it is for the new iPad or the older iPad2.

    Yea, probably so they can charge more money for it. :cool: Just like for cases. One of the review sites (Macworld.com) said the iPad 2 cases they have on hand all fit fine.

    Anyone think that the smart cover will work with glas.t?

    This looks great but it will probably be out of a lot of people's price range.

    I believe that smart cover will not be compatible with iPad on GLAS t since it will add more thickness to it. :confused::confused::confused:

    How much thickness is enough to create a problem?

    Plastic screen protectors work fine with Smart Covers, so clearly something with a little thickness works fine.

    Seeing how the smart covers works with magnets, and magnets work through glass, I do not see a problem with it working.

    Well said. ;)
    I'm using one for my iPhone 4S right now and I'm loving it. At first I thought this was a hype, but after testing it out myself, I understand why people say that they can't go back to screen protector films after using the glass tempered screen protectors.

    I have seen an installed SGP GLAS.t on a friend's Samsung Galaxy Note and the feel on the surface is very smooth. I would say it is on par with the Power Support Cyrstal Clear film on my iPhone. And also the scratch resistance for this glass is much better than the best clear screen protector in the market (ie. 3-4H vs 8-9H)

    However, can you really lift up the glass to remove one single lint during the install? Do the whole glass sheet has to be lifted up entirely?

    On regular screen protector, you can lift up part of the film and use scotch tape to pick up a lint or so.

    That's something which stops me from going for it..
