Default A800 series Clear Protector Sheets

Hey Guys,

I noticed on Sony's website they offer for $10 bucks clear screen protectors for the s600 series.. though not for the A800...

these sheets are about 2 inches which would cover the A800 screen, though I dont think they would fit just right....

question is does anyone know of an aftermarket company that sells the sheets to fit the A800?

if not,

Has anybody tried these sheets with the A800... and how did they fit?

Thanks

I'm a PDA user (Palm T/X), and it is likely that the screen protectors used for PDAs could be adapted to fit the A800 screen. When I was buying a screen protector for my PDA, rather than a screen protector for my specific PDA I found a pack of sheets that could be cut down to fit a variety of PDAs, cell phones, and digital audio players. One of the companies that sell these type of protectors is Fellows and you can find them in an office supply store. This could be a lower-cost option for a screen protector for your digital audio player.

I hope that helps.

$10... insane!

Search for a fitting one on http://www.dealextreme.com/ - they cost about $1.50 there (free shipping), and are of very high quality. I've been using Dealextreme screen protectors on all my devices for a long time, and I'm very happy with them.

This may be stupid but can you cut these sheets down to size?

No problem with a sharp knife and a ruler.

yup, invisible shield is better material i bet
but bestskinsever.com uses the same material, and you can buy a do it yourself sheet for less than 10 bucks shipped. its quite large so you have plenty left over.

If you're willing to wait a few weeks you can get them very cheaply (incl. free shipping) from dealextreme.com. I bought this one http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.3800 and I just cut it to size with a pen knife. You really can't beat the price.
