New 3M screen protector promises to fade fingerprints away – like magic
It seems there is no way around it – after even the slightest use, it seems that your mobile device’s display is encased in fingerprints. Somedays it feels like we spend more time cleaning it then using it. If that sounds like a day in the life of you, you may want to check out 3M’s Natural View Fingerprint Fading Screen Protectors.

3M doesn’t explain the science behind the patent pending technology, but does promise that fingerprints will fade away without blurring the image. Additionally, it also features a scratch resistant surface and “stay-clean edges” that will keep the fuzzies out of your seams. 3M also claims one of the features is that the protector is “easy to apply,” but if you have ever installed a screen protector, particularly on a large display such as a tablet, you know that promise may be a bit of a stretch, especially to get it on bubble-free.

Currently these screen protectors are available for the iPad 2 and the new iPad and will be available soon for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. You can grab a 2-pack for your iPad direct from 3M for about $28 or head over to Amazon to find the same product for a few bucks less.

Hey now... I've got 3 out of 4 screens with zero bubbles. The fourth was an absolute train wreck of bubbles n' fuzzies though so it must have been faulty.

How crazy a world is it where they're getting us to pay $30 for a sheet (okay, 2 sheets technically) of Scotch tape HD?

If so flawless why even give us two? You no stingy like ZAGG lol? Hopefully you work better.

I can't wait to buy one for my RAZR MAXX!

First of all, its got to be witchcraft. Second of all, I've never used a screen protector on any phone and i keep my phone in a pocket with keys, change, etc and I've never had scratch. Waste of money, even if it does get rid of fingerprints.

Like you niocholassss, I never use a screen protector. Ever.
But, the lack of fingerprints is worth (for me) further investigation...

I could see that, I have a nasty habit of constantly whipping screen.
