Javoedge Announces JavoScreen Protector for iPods

Javoedge, makers of PDA accessories has released the JavoScreen protector for all model iPods. The JavoScreen features a non-adhesive, non-reflective, scratch-proof material which keeps your screen clean for $5.95, and includes a free cleaning cloth and instruction card.

And can you please contact your “already who bought it” customers know about the price change and refund.  I really hate to see people get ripped off, thank you.

Still too pricey for just 1/2 by 1/2 plastic, for me anyways!

If anyone here use pocket PC and buys those screen protectors, you should know this is a okay deal. These things are pricy by nature.

For Pocket PC screen, u constantly tap it leaving marks, making you replace it every month or so. But that’s not the case with iPod. You stick it on, and you good for well, forever.

As for instructions, yes it’s good to have one. These things are hard to place it correctly.

Too bad this company will soon be hit by a lawsuit. A company in the U.S holds a patent to place sticky or tacky film on LCD screens. Its funny that companies still jump into things without doing homework. Good Luck

wow, a free cleaning cloth and plastic card.  Javoedge really shelled out the big bux to give a great deal.

What do they cost, a quarter?

What do iPod’s cost? A couple of dollars to manufacture? Whos the fool now?

there is another far cheaper way to do the screen protection -
buy a sheet of mylar for next to nothing
cut a template the size of the screen to be protected
cut it with great care so it looks like you bought it at some place very expensive
put it on the screen
if necessary use the edge of a credit card to smooth out any bubbles
done

however, I have little wish to protect just the screen - the whole iPod is scratch risk - I get the full coverage with this little gem.

on a more positive note…i do love your retractable chord things for the handhelds…are you gonna release any of these as firewire connectors? To be more specific for ipods? i really do not like carrying those long chords around…

Doug—where can I buy a sheet of mylar?

lol…this is hilarious…$5.95 after the correction?  Are you sure you don’t mean 59 cents?  So I only get 1 protector for $5.95?  This is one of the biggest rip offs I have every seen.  I am not sure what is worse, this or that silly dock cover that came out recently.
