    I can't be sure but mine sounds like some kind a plastic and doesn't feel as smooth as my 002. Anyone else notice this? With the 002 my finger would just slide over the screen with the 003 it has more friction.

    I think the 003 screens are plastic and not glass like the 002 versions of the EVO.

    Mine is made of glass. I chipped the corner near the ear piece and picked up the piece.

    the only way to test it now is to cut lines of your favorite powdered products on the screen and see if they stick or slide~

    seriously, guys, come on

    Do you know for a fact it doesn't have a screen shield on it (i.e. some Best Buy guy didn't install it for you before you picked it up?)

    No kidding, I kind of wish we couldnt see what version it was. It is causing way too much panic and speculation.

    I think the version is irrelevent. It's the build date that's important. Look inside the lower left inside of the battery cover and check for a date.

    Haha, make sure your hands arent sweaty ;) Humidity could make your hands even the slightest bit moist which will make your hand skip across the screen rather than slide.

    If you hold your 003 EVO on the left side, it will drop your calls, right?

    If you can't tell glass from plastic, well, maybe you shouldn't hold that evo, lol...

    The hardware version seems to have nothing to do with what kind of screen is on the phone. Some folks over at XDA were checking the kernel logs on both versions and found that, while all 002 versions seemed to have Novatec screens, some 003s had Epson screens and some had Novatecs. I think HTC is just using whatever screens it has available for production at any given time.
