iPhone 4 Gorilla Glass not quite so scratch-resilient after all?

The iPhone 4 has Gorilla Glass magic, right, and so can't be damaged by us mere mortals?  Sadly not; Gdgt's Ryan Block has tweeted an image of a review iPhone 4 - apparently from the pocket of Josh Topolsky - that's gained a few unsightly scratches in the few days its been in the wild.

According to Apple, the glass used in the iPhone 4 sandwich is "ultradurable and more scratch resistant than ever", so we're not sure what else its been sharing space with in Josh's pockets.  Still, the takeaway message is that, if you want your iPhone 4 to stay looking box fresh, consider a screen protector front and back.
