ZAGG Invisible Shield Available for K2

If you like the clean, uncluttered look of the K2, but still want protection, the Invisible Sheild may be exactly what you're looking for. They just notified me that they have the Shield for the K2 available.

These are more than just a "skin", giving true protection for your precious Kindle. I've used them on my cell phone and PDA, and absolutely love them.

The kit includes a screen protector as well, though I'm not sure I'll use that piece, as it might add a bit of glare.

You can find the Shield for the K2 at: ZAGG Invisible Shield for K2

$35 for a screen protector!? Completely outrageous price IMO.

Not a screen protector - a whole body protector. But unlike most "skins" it also includes the screen protector if you want to use it.

Still outrageous IMO. You can buy leather covers for that price. Paying that much for a protective sheet. No thanks.

I had an invisible shield for one of my iPods a couple of years ago. Dirt gets under them very quickly and they leave a sticky residue on the device.

I've used the ZAGG shields on all of my past Blackberry's, including my present one the Storm. I've also used it on my wife's DS and my PSP. They can take a little skill to apply but they work awesome. I've never had a residue problem when selling my old Blackberry's. They really are worth the investment if you are looking for total protection without it being visible.

The only thing is just take your time putting them on and follow the directions.

I have used ZAGG screen protectors on many of my devices, and while they are terrific, I do think they are EXTREMELY overpriced. I have latey started using BestSkinsEver protectors, and they are EXACTLY the same thing, except much cheaper ... and have a mych smaller selection (but they do add new models all the time)

However, my biggest concern with putting these screen protectors on the Kindle (or any other eInk) screen is that they will take away the matte "paperlike" finish and will become more glary.

Having used InvisibleSheild for a couple years on my cell phone and PDA, not really sure how you got dirt under one applied correctly. Same with the sticky residue. That goes totally against my experience.

I agree, and won't be using the "screen protector" piece for that reason. I want the body protection, as I don't really think the K needs a screen protector. I have requested Zagg make a version without the screen piece as well.

I'm curious, too. The ones I tried either add too much glare or peel off. Or both.
