    Screen protector or not?

    I'm curious to know if any Xoom owners are using a screen protector. I have always used high-quality protectors on my phones, DSLRs and other devices but I cannot imagine covering this gorgeous, Gorilla Glass display with a protector. Yuk.

    Sales people at VZW are offering them @ $24.99!! (There better be more than one in the box!)

    I vote no. You?

    Absolutely! I can't even imagine not protecting this screen. And there are 3 in the packages verizon sells.

    But the beauty of the Gorilla Glass is its durability. Is the protector the same or clearer than the protective covering that was on it out of the box? Are there bubbles?

    Gorilla glass does scratch and quite easily. I have scratched gorilla glass by just carrying it in my pocket with headphones. But if you take care of it and don't put the screen near anything pointy, you will be fine

    Have to go with the screen protector, if nothing else so it retains it's resale value -

    I've usually used them on my phone to help with finger prints(SGP Anti-fingerprints lol). Don't think id bother if you're just worried about scratching the screen though. It's not like you'll be carrying it around in your pocket with keys & such

    The whole selling point behind gorilla glass is its scratch resistant. I keep my droid in my pocket, let my two my two year old play with it, droped it and never got a scratch on the screen. Those must be some diamond tipped ear phones.lol

    I have one little bubble I can't get out, but it's right at the corner be the verizon logo so it's no big deal. I'm not sure why, but it was the easiest protector I've ever put on. As far as it being clear... I don't even notice it.
