LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- 2010 CES (LVCC Meeting Room #N108) - Targus® Inc., maker of the world's top-selling laptop computer cases and accessories, announced today its new fingerprint-resistant line of screen protectors, the Targus Screen Protector with Clear View(TM) technology. Clear View(TM) technology is a patent-pending technology that protects touch screen devices such as smartphones, e-Readers, laptops, etc. from fingerprints, scratches and smudges. With the added features of anti-glare treatment and specially formulated adhesive that prevents bubbles and peeling, it is the most comprehensive screen protection solution available on the market today.

"Our consumer research found that fingerprints and smudges are a major pain point for touch screen device owners. And now with the Targus Screen Protector with Clear View(TM) technology, we can solve this problem without compromising the clarity of the screen. In addition, consumers find screen protectors difficult to install, frequently leaving bubbles and lifted edges that compromise their touch device experience," stated Carolyn Perrier, vice president of accessories product management and marketing at Targus. "We sought to develop a solution that addresses all the complaints consumers have with their current screen protectors while creating a new standard in overall quality and performance. With the rapid growth of touch screens in all types of electronic devices, we see increasing demand for high performance protection solutions, which our technology provides."

The Targus Screen Protector with Clear View(TM) technology features a microscopic landscape of ridges and valleys that work to dissipate fingerprint oils, thus leaving the screen virtually fingerprint and smudge free. 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 new Targus Screen Protector with Clear View(TM) is available for smartphones at a very affordable $9.99. Models include:
