Clear Armor is a protective film that adheres to your iPhoner, protecting it in its entirety while appearing invisible to the casual observer. It is crafted from 3M’s Scotchgard Protection Film, is the highest quality of its kind today. This film was originally designed to protect Apache Helicopter blades during Desert Storm. Today, 3M’s film is used around the world to protect automobiles from scratches, dings, and chips. The product is easy to apply and will protect the device from scratches for life. Plus, the Clear Armor design is uniquely engineered to prevent damage to the iPhone upon removal.
Clear Armor is available immediately for the iPhone, iPod touch, BlackBerry Curve, and iPod classic (80 GB and 160 GB), and can be ordered online at case-mate.com (most versions cost $19.99).
Canadian company StyleTap Inc. will provide the StyleTap CrossPlatform for the iPhone and the iPod touch — that, according to the company, will allow over 20,000 mobile applications to run on these devices, which would be a huge overall boost for iPhone’s usability.
As for prior experiences, StyleTap CrossPlatform has successfully enabled developers of applications originally written for Palm OS devices to deploy their applications on handheld PDAs and smartphones running Microsoft Windows Mobile. These same applications will soon be available to users with smartphones based on the Symbian OS platform, with the impending release of StyleTap CrossPlatform for Symbian OS, currently in the beta testing cycle.
Further information about the product, including how it will be marketed and sold, will be made available in early July 2008, while the company should be present at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco, CA from June 9-13, 2008 and would be happy to meet developers interested in CrossPlatform — they do ask to contact them for appointments (email: sales at styletap.com or contact them through their website) in advance, though.
