Help Bit worried about camera lens susceptibility to damage

I had to replace the back cover on my HTC Desire because the window protecting the camera lens, which is part of the back cover, got scratched. There is no replaceable back on the One X - so what happens if the protective window gets scratched like my Desire's? Does anyonw know if the window is replaceable? It also protrudes more than on the Desire, which makes me even more nervous!

You are not the only one, I have heard a few people having some quite nasty scuffs and scratches after only owning the phone a few days. Mine is OK right now, but I am babying it a bit, something I really don't want to do. I am awaiting the delivery of a couple of cheap cases to see if they go some way to protecting the lens. All I want is to be able to put the phone down on a table or desk camera-side down without freaking out!

Yeah I can't decide if I will do a case that is thick enough to protect it, or just put a high-quality screen protector on it...
