Well, I agree the bezel glare is not a smart design move.

Rather than taking it apart, I just protected the screen with paper and 3M magic tape, also the buttons and non-glare black above them, and I sanded the bezel down while still attached.

Maybe not as smooth-silk as toothpaste, but it did the job for me.

Cool Used tape to get rid of that annoying glare

I used scotch magic invisible tape to mask that nasty glare. I'm willing to wait a year till warranty is over, than I'll take it apart and sand it down.

These are my result: (I only had my old mobile phone on me, so the photo quality is not so good).

First test to see how masking tape performs

(larger)

Fully applied. Not perfect, but it's good enough for me. Wish I had a better camera.

I just ordered a silicone cover, which should arrive tomorrow or Saturday. I would've ordered a DecalGirl skin, but I couldn't justify the cost (DecalGirl's are four times the price of the silicone cover), and this should be much easier to "install".
I thought about it too, but being in Argentina they don´t ship it here. I´m trying to get a local skin developer to make one for the T1 to no avail...

This is the bundle I'm considering:

I use my iPod mobile charger to charge the T1... If you don´t have one is a good choice, but if you do, don´t bother with the extra charge...

Unfortunately I don't have any chargers that will work. I didn't want to spend $25 for the Sony charger so I'm really hoping this one will work. The car charger is just a bonus.
