Back at PubCon I ran into a couple of guys from ShieldZone.com. Shield Zone (part of Zagg Inc.), makes cell phone scratch protectors. Actually, they make protectors for phones, ipods, cameras, laptops, yadda yadda yadda.
If I ever got an iPhone I would have to get one. It protects the covered areas from scratches. They sent me one and I put on the screen of my Treo 755p. It’s great. Now I don’t mind having it in the same pocket as my keys. They offer different types of protectors and they really do work. In my case I was going to take a photo of my phone before and after but it looks the same.
It just goes to show you that you run into good people at these kind of events.
