    They already got one out-->

    ZAGG | invisibleSHIELD | Motorola Droid Cases, Screen Protectors, Covers, Shields, Skins, Invisible Shield

    I love IS full body coverage but I dont like the screen protectors at all.
    I cant stand the stick, rubbery feel of them.
    The 3 pack at Verizon for 3.99 is perfect for me, slick and perfectly clear, no orange peel look at all like the Zagg and Ghost Armour and BSE

    I already applied my ZAGG last night, will post pics later today...afterwhich i hope the microsuds would disappear.

    Only down side with it is that it is slightly sticky when scrolling.

    It will drive you crazy! I had one on my Vogue and on my Diamond and it makes scrolling so much worse!
    I plan on buying the Zagg full body and not using the screen protector

    Id go with the VZW one, you get 3 for 12.99 and they are perfectly clear and smooth and WAY easier to install than the rubbery expensive ones.

    Is it a fingerprint magnet? i may pick it up today. These urethane screens really hinder my droid experience.

    I have the VZW protector and it's a royal pain to install, unless i'm doing something wrong. They are cut so exact, that if you don't start it perfectly straight, by the time you get to the bottom, just being skewed a little forces it up over the edge and it won't lay flat.

    Then there is the dust. One little piece of dust under it causes a bubble. No matter how much you clean and use compressed air, dust always shows up.

    I've already used up my 3 trying to get it right.

    On the positive side, your finger slides nicely on and I notice no difference in sensitivity, but it is a finger print magnet.

    I'm thinking the wet method of putting on a protector is the best, but don't know if that will work with the VZW ones. I may give it a shot later.

    Best way Iv found is to steam up the bathroom then turn the shower off and let the steam settle along with any dust floating around in there.
    Then go in the bathroom and wipe the screen down with an alchol pad, then wipe it with the included lint-free cloth to remove any streaks.

    Then when installing it, start at the top of the screen, while holding the protector from the bottom edges.
    line up the ear speaker and the top 2 corners.
    then start squeeging it down slowly making sure to get all the air bubbles out as you go.
    I use a rubber squeege I got with an invisibleSHIELD a long time ago but a credit card works also.

    As far as installing it wet. that works great with the soft rubber protectors but it makes the hard plastic ones look like crap and not stick like they should.

    I did try the shower method this morning but that wasn't much better. I guess i'll keep trying or just go for the ZAGG.

    I have the Ghost Armor on my G1, both full body and screen, and really like it. I am buying a droid today, and intend to get Ghost Armor applied to it as soon as convenient.

    I tried all kinds of screen protectors, and Ghost Armor is the only one that I have liked. On my G1, I got mine put on at a kiosk locally in a mall, and they didn't charge me the list price. I paid like $30 installed plus tax for full body plus screen, which included lifetime warranty. Even if you have to return the phone to your carrier on warranty, they will put new armor on the replacement phone. Someone brought a warranty replacement phone in and they did it while I was there.

    That will go away with use. Had one on my BB Storm and is smoothed out over time.

    Yea I dont have an issue scrolling etc....the only time I noticed it being a little sticky is when trying to drag an icon/widget to another screen.

    I had Bestbuy install mine and they did an excellent job with the exception of 1 tiny piece of lint/dust that is only noticeable on a white screen.

    I got the ZAGG for my iPhone, and it NEVER stopped feeling sticky to me. I went with the one at Verizon..got it for free with my purchase, plus the guy put it on for me..and botched up the first one, so gave me a full pack + opened another pack and put a 2nd one on (removing the first). There is no stickiness, but it DOES get tons of fingerprints on it. I suppose I can live with fingerprints over scratches ruining the screen.

    I bought a leather pouch, because I snap my phone into the window mount when I drive. The cases that snap on to them won't allow you to mount it in the car, and figured rather than put the thing in my pocket when I walk around, the leather case was better.. just slide it on my belt or pants, and good to go.

    I'm going with Ghost Armor..I hear nothing but great things about it and there is no tacky feeling or Orange peel effect...

    If I can remember where I saw some pics of it applied I would post them but it's invisible. Seriously you can't see them..unless it's pointed out
