    Default composition of the screen?

    Does anyone know if the Tab 10.1 screen is Corning Gorilla Glass? I would like to take off my protective cover to try and improve the sensitivity but I don't want to be more exposed to scratching. Suggestions gratefully appreciated.

    Never mind, I found it. Sorry to bother. Should have looked before I posted.

    No matter what you will be more exposed to scratches. Gorilla glass is scratch resistant, not scratch proof. I stopped using screen protector on mine 4 months now. I figured I have a book cover type case on so screen always covered when not in use. When being used i am the only person who ever touches my screen so why do I need a protector.

    Same here...the bookcase cover is great, and I keep my tab covered when I'm not using it, so I'm not very concerned about scratches. It's not like my phone that has to ride around in my pants pocket and travel everywhere with it's screen exposed.

    Exactly,, just be cautious when closing your case. I have been in a coffee shop using my tablet and if you do not pay attention you may close your case with a piece of suger on it, or a piece of salt from a French fri. I always make sure that my case is smooth and clean when I close. One little grain of suger or salt could put a scratch.

    A grain of sand could scratch the screen, but I don't think that salt or sugar crystals are tough enough to damage Gorrilla glass. Keys won't scratch the glass.

    If it could or not was not my point,, point I was making is to be careful that nothing is on your cover when you close it. I just love when I hear stories like""I don't know where the scratch came from,, I am so careful ". I would not want to find out if salt could scratch.
