    I had my D1 for two years (or so) and 0 screen scratches, no screen protectors or covers.

    My D3 I have had for about a month and I have 2/3 pretty significant gouges on the glass. I baby my stuff and have taken the same steps to ensure the health of both.

    As much as I dislike screen protectors (the feel, the look etc.) I might recommend one on the D3.
    FWIW

    There is a very thin layer anti-glare coating on the screen. Perhaps it is not as resistant to scratches and what people are seeing is that layer being peeled/scratched and not actually the screen. Either way, I manager to get my screen protector on flawlessly and it's cut perfectly, so I see no reason to remove it. I do often flirt with the idea of taking it out of the snap case though. I love the way this device feels in hand and the case really takes away from that, but I'm trying to keep it pristine until the otter box is released.

    Personally im not one for screen protectors as for other phones such as the env3 and env touch they end up making the screen look dirty, but I love the screen protector I have on my droid. It doesn't scratch and feels very smooth when using the device, I suggest a screen protector for everyone ^-^

    I'm using the Halo screen protector ordered from Amazon. 3 pack for 5 dollars. Very smooth and clear.

    It was released tuesday, at the time of my original post, it was not available. It was listed on their site, but if you read carefully it said "this item is not available for purchase yet". It's now out but I have no idea if it fits with the extended battery which is why I am holding off.

    I used the original Droid for two years without a screen protector. Multiple drops, no carrying case, and the screen still looks brand new.

    I've had my Bionic for three weeks and it has a shallow, but noticeable, scratch about an inch long. I always carry it in my front pocket by itself, just like my old Droid, and I've never dropped it, thrown it on a table, or set it down on its face.

    This looks like an example of Motorola taking something that worked perfectly and "improving" it to the point of fault.

    My guess is it's the "glare coating" I've read about. GG might be protected from scratches, but anything put on the outside of it will be scratch-able.
