iPhone 3G S is fingerprint resistant
Fingerprints and smudges are annoying marks that tend to really irritate many cellphone users (check out how many video reviews of a handset call the reviewed device a "fingerprint magnet"); so once again, leave it to the guys at Cupertino to be the first to come up with a solution that helps reduce a common problem found on most cellphones.

A lint free cloth or t shirt is what everyone uses to wipe their phone off with. Not much of a story here, NEXT!!

Sorry I overlooked your comment before but are you an idiot? Pretty sure the headline of this story and almost all it's contents, except for what you pointed out, are about the phone being resistant to fingerprints. Get back to class and lay off the huffing.

LP71 IS RIGHT . IF IT THE RESISTANCE WAS AS GOOD AS THEY'RE TRYING TO MAKE IT SEEM WE WOULDN'T HAVE TO "SIMPLY WIPE THE SCREEN " WE ALREADY DO THAT SILLY RABBIT I THINK ITS JUST A LITTLE BIT LESS RESISTANT BUT NOT AS MUCH AS THE ARTICLE IS SAYING CUZ I'M SURE IF IT WAS A WHOLE LOT MORE IT WOULD BE ADVERTISED A BIT MORE

Cool! Wish all phone manufacture put on this oleophobic coating that made handset resistant to fingerprints. :-)

You'd think eventually they will jump on board with this... I have an HTC Fuze, and the one thing I HATE about it is the fact I have to wipe off my finger prints all the time. This would be ultra rad if this were implemented on all phones!

I'd like this oleophobic coating on my Desert Eagle .50;) ...And on all my ammunition as well ;);)
