The difference in display assemblies between the iPhone and iPod Touch made us wonder if the Touch uses a glass front like the iPhone. After seeing no official word from Apple, we resorted to a scratch test. We used a key to scratch the front of an iPod Video, iPod Touch, and iPhone. We're happy to report that the iPod Touch came out completely unscathed, while the iPod Video received a large gouge on its plastic front.
