    Was a little concerned when I saw these DO NOT COVER the entire screen, then I thought to myself, why would it have to? It covers the main part you're always touching (other than the home buttons).

    These are NOT crystal clear, they are slightly anti-glare. As a result, they do SLIGHTLY impact the clarity of the screen, not a big deal, doubt anyone will be able to tell from any pics I'll shoot.

    Installation was easy thanks to dotted lines on the perimeter of the protector outer peel-off layer, a nice touch. (You remove this outer protector as the final step of the install).

    Surface sliding is VERY SMOOTH.

    Overall, I recommend these.

    I agree with your assessment. I was a little surprised they didn't at least go the whole way to the top of the screen.

    The only time I have noticed the screen is 'cloudy' was while I was in direct sunlight today.

    Other than that, it seems like it will do the job. I may upgrade to a Zagg one later (if it's even available)

    Not sure. They were just in the bundle (literally in the box with the case and car charger). I am guessing these are anti-glare. They sure look that way.

    That was the main reason why I decided not to buy them yesterday. The sales girl kept saying "but, what if..."

    If you decide that you want a screen protector to cover the entire screen give these a look... seidioonline.com

    They're from Seidio. They make great extended batteries. I haven't personally tried their screen protectors yet, but I just may. I like everything else they offer.

    They don't list them for the DInc2, yet, but when they do, which model do you recommend?

    Crystal clear?
    Anti Fingerprint?
    SGP Shield ($$)?

    i like the crystal clear, they are just that... you can not tell you have one on. I have used them on my inc1, the kids ipad, wife's iphone... she is picky picky and she could not believe there was a screen protector on her phone. and best of all, easy to install... i have tried the vz, the zagg (oh man I almost chucked the kids ipad)... and I am not real finite with installing stuff like that...

    the anti-fingerprint one is good too, but the screen is not as clear, you can tell you have one on... but it does do its job which is nice... i used one on my inc1 for awhile, but changed it after awhile... I don't mind wiping the screen once in awhile in exchange for a better picture. I think either way you'd be happy, but I would go crystal clear...
