Will the current screen protectors sold for the original iPad work for the new iPad2? Same size screen, correct? Thanks.

That's my understanding, and it looks like it has the same position for the home button as well, so I assume we should be good to go. Looks like Zagg will be busy getting those replacements out.

Except for the fact that the front (and back) has a camera lens. So the screen protector will cover that and screw up your pics/video.

16GB iPhone 5, 64GB Wi-Fi only iPad 1st Gen.

Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.

Yes, forgot about that. I already have found some companies that already have the new screen protectors slated for release at the end of March. This is cool. I more than likely will not get an iPad 2 until May.

Thanks.

from what I understood in the keynote the size of the actual screen is the same but the border is slightly smaller. I will be buying whatever Zagg comes up with. I get all there stuff for my phones.

If you found a cheap deal on a screen protector for iPad 1 could you not just get one of those single hole punches and punch a hole where the camera is?

no. LCD size is the same but the ipad dimensions are different.

^ That's correct. The iPad 2 glass extends to the edges, the iPad 1 has a little lip of aluminum where the glass ends.

Be careful with the Zagg, I purchased one today, and the holes on the front cover don't line up at all!

I'm dying waiting for PowerSupport to get their iPad 2 screen protector out. That's the only film I'll use for my iPhones and iPads. I can get them on perfect every time, I can't even tell there's anything on there, and they last forever. I just wish they'd hurry up. Surely it can't take that long to adjust the template and pop those babies out, can it?

I hope they work out for you. Fitment has been hit and miss on those so far.

Isn't that the Zagg Invisible Shield made for the original iPad? From a reply to my previous post the dimensions have changed and therefore it requires a different size Invisible Shield. It is still on the Zagg site that it's iPad 2 shield is available for pre-order.
