On XDA there was quite a bit of discussion over whether or not a screen protector was "needed" as this device doesn't use Gorilla glass.. I am really debating the merits of a screen protector myself.. I mean It is't going in my pocket with my keys like a phone might on accident.. but, I really don't want to start having scratches pop up and not know where they came from.. The problem I have is it is hard enough to apply a screen protector right on a 4" phone.. a 7" tab seems like a nightmare.. if bestbuy sold the zagg front screen protector I'd jump on that option to have them put it on.. But, it isn't an option and I'm not quite sure what to do..
