Probably a smart move. I think having a screen protector on the Droid is mostly unnecessary, but there are 4 things that can scratch the screen: 1. Diamonds 2. Sand 3. Ceramics 4. Broken glass I've never used a screen protector, and I've had my phone since November; there are zero scratches on my screen. But I wouldn't take it to the beach, that's asking for trouble.
