Default Screen protector?

I've been using my P3 for a month or so. I'm careful in handling and I know the screen is really tough. However, I'm worried about the possibilities of dust gathering underneath the screen.

Is it possible? Should I go for a screen protector? If so, can you suggest me one?

Thanks to everyone in ABI!!

I don't think it can gather underneath the screen...anyway I my P3 came with a permanent screen protector. It's like REALLY REALLY stuck on, I can't peel it off even if I tried.

Dust gets under the screen through ports, mostly the headphone jack. However, if you want to purchase a screen protector, go to amazon.com and search for a p3 accessory kit. I bought one and it came with a screen protector, some cases, belt clip, armband and a headphone wrap. You might be able to find a screen protector seperately too.
Hope I helped

I've had my P3 for ages and not one spec of dust has got under the screen.

And it seems to be that the screen is really hard to scratch

A screen protector probably won't protect against dust getting below the screen and I don't know how prone the P3 is to getting trapped dust under the screen. Besides, the headphone jack is the most likely place for dust to enter the device.

Well, there is no such thing likes 100% scratch-proof, especially for a thing that the manufacturer doesn't says that at all. However 80% chance that it won't get scratch is probably still better than 0% chance to stay beautiful after 1 week. I take P3's screen durability as a grant, but I still buy a leather vertical cover case for it.

If you keep that P3 careful, hopefully it will still stay beautiful until you throw into the trash can.
