Good to know, unfortunately

Ashame there doesnt seem to be a really good protector out there. Doesnt look like they are making an Ultra Crystal for it either, it seems the outer edges of the glass are a little "bevelled" so the dry contact glue wont stick to them.....I noticed at least one person with the same issue using the Boxwave just didnt adhere to the outer edges. Granted, the right case may cover right over it, but still.

I might give the Boxwave a try....its a dry install, and it seems to be cut to cover the WHOLE screen. According to their site the areas around the edges should eventually conform and stick like the rest of the protector, so maybe thats the best bet right now for this phone.

I really really didnt want to leave it naked, I just know Ill pull some dumb dumb move and end up scratching it.
