    Once I get this phone I want to slap a screen protector right away to protect it from scratches. Or do we have to wait till phone is released for manufactures to purchase phone themselves to create a mold of a screen protector.

    If you don't mind spending a little extra money, you could slap a universal protector on it until you find a custom version.

    Wirefly has a couple universal protectors that they say is compatible with it. Wirefly Samsung Epic 4G TouchCar Chargers, Headsets, Cases and More - Best Prices! 60518

    Otherwise yeah we're likely going to have to wait until release.

    Doesn't this phone have gorilla glass?

    Yes it has the gorilla glass. I just like to get a screen protector anyways, since i usually go no-case, and keep the phone in my pocket most of the time. just a precaution.

    Gorilla glass makes this phone scratch resistant not scratch-proof.

    Yes it does, but some people still like to put a screen cover on Gorilla Glass for more protection. Gorilla Glass is tough but it's not unscratchable.

    I see, this will potentially be my first phone with gorilla glass so maybe I just have a little too much confidence in it!

    Yes it does, no need for a screen protector.
    I have the evo 4g now for almost two years, not a scratch on it. Evo has gorilla glass.

    If you want quality protectors with varying material, visit the link below (there not in stock yet, but they will be). But like others have said, the glass will be difficult to scratch and there are other cheaper alternatives.

    Thanks, I just ordered. Seems cheap enough and I won't use the device before putting a screen protector on it.

    i dont think the evo has gorilla glass.

    Even so u didn't get scratches in the manner u used it, so u should be just fine with this more scratch resistant glass. However, not everyone may be as careful as you, i occasionally forget which pocket has my keys in it and will place my phone in the same pocket. So really it depends on how the person uses their phone.
