So I picked up a iPad screen protector because it was effectively half a dollar and it was 9.7", I though that will fit the TouchPad...

Now becasue I haven't got my hands on one just now, I wondered if actually fits...

Could someone please confirm this or what?

It fits. Even the iPad smartcover works if you tape/glue it on, funny enough.

How well does it fit? Perfectly?

I only picked it up, as my fingers makes lots of "essentials oils"

The width is right, the height is right. The cutout for the Home button is round instead of oblong, of course. But it WILL require trimming on the corners. I just pulled an iPad 1 protector out and held it over the TP, and the TP corners have a larger radius, so the iPad 1 protector hung over each corner.

Once trimmed, it should work just fine, though. It would be best to find something with the same radius as the TP corners (tape roll, medication bottle, etc) to guide the cut on a flat surface, rather than just using scissors and hoping you get it right.

I haven't installed one yet, as I have both clear and mirrored iPad protectors, and I'm not sure which I want to use. Until then, I'm just leaving the packing cellophane on it (just like my iPad 1, the cellophane is still on it almost a year later).

I just checked, a cap from a Powerade bottle is REALLY close, its' radius is a touch large. And a cap off a 2L Coke is a touch too small. Either would get you so close it shouldn't matter, but a cap between those two would be nearly perfect. Personally, I'd trim to the 2L cap, then see if I need to shave a tiny bit off afterwards.

I've had a device with Gorrila Glass, and with the usage it gof, It did get a few scuffs.

As I said this is not to protect the screen from scratches but to allow me to clean the screen easier.

My desire screen always feels oily no matter how much I clean it now, And my friend's, Good wipe with a cloth feels fine, and if it doesnt, Can easily be replaced.

As I said, my main reason for the screen protector is dud to the oils the skin creates.

Have you found that the protector seems to be slightly to long? Perhaps it this cheap cheap protector...
