NEW YORK, June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- CEA LINE SHOW -- Targus® Inc., maker of the world's top-selling laptop computer cases and accessories, unveiled today the new and improved Targus Screen Protector for the Apple iPad. The new Screen Protector reduces fingerprints and smudges thus maintaining clarity. With the added features of anti-glare treatment and specially formulated adhesive that prevents bubbles and peeling, it is the most comprehensive screen protector for your iPad available on the market today.

"Using microstructures in a film to resist fingerprints can trap oils and paper fibers over time causing the screen to appear cloudy," stated Carolyn Perrier, vice president of accessories product management and marketing at Targus. "The improved Targus Screen Protector is engineered to not only resist fingerprints and scratches, but also the oils and fibers that can compromise clarity. This feature along with the anti-glare treatment and bubble free, easy to apply adhesive offers the most comprehensive screen protection available for the iPad on the market today."

The Targus Screen Protector features a microscopic landscape of ridges and valleys at just the right height and density to dissipate finger print oils without trapping substances such as makeup, food grease, sunscreen and other materials which over time can reduce visibility. These exclusive micro-structures also reduce glare so you can see your screen inside or outside, and when combined with the properties of the film, it creates a scratch proof surface.  The specially formulated adhesive makes it incredibly easy to apply, and completely bubble-free. The Screen Protector is pre-cut for a precise fit on the iPad and all devices for which it is available.  

Targus Screen Protector for the Apple iPad is priced at an MSRP of $29.99. This and other Targus accessories are available at Targus.com as well as through leading retailers, VARs, e-tailers, distributors and direct marketers.
