THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Aug. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Uni-Pixel, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: UNXL), a production stage company delivering Clearly Superior™ Performance Engineered Films to the touch screen, flexible electronics, lighting and display, and solar market segments, announced today that its industry-leading fingerprint resistant (FPR) screen protectors for iPhone and iPad are now available for pre-order via Amazon.com with shipment in September 2010. Uni-Pixel's Amazon.com storefront can be accessed at http://www.unipixel.com/shop.
According to Reed Killion, Uni-Pixel's President and CEO, "Our patent-pending fingerprint resistant technology is the newest option in screen protectors, and uniquely addresses the issue of fingerprints and smudges to remove virtually every trace from view. Fingerprints mark a touch screen display when oils transfer from a user's skin to the touch screen, and these oil patterns remain visible when they sit unaffected on the flat surface. Unlike other flat or matte finish films, the Clearly Superior™ FPR film surface is covered with millions of micro-optic structures, which clear oils from the surface and remove fingerprint patterns; this preserves image clarity and quality."
Mr. Killion also added, "Based on the rising shipments of smartphones, Uni-Pixel estimates that the touch screen protector market is well over $250 million annually and that it will continue to grow rapidly. We believe that by offering a superior product at a competitive price, our Clearly Superior™ FPR film will become the gold standard in the screen protector market. We are offering FPR under our own brand for Internet sales, and Uni-Pixel is currently in negotiations and qualification with several retailers and OEMs for private label products."
Combined with scratch protection, an anti-glare treatment, and a specially formulated adhesive that prevents bubbles and peeling, Uni-Pixel's Clearly Superior™ is the most comprehensive screen protection solution available on the market today and sets a new standard for the touch screen user experience. Further product information and updates will be made available via Uni-Pixel's Clearly Superior™ Facebook Page, http://www.facebook.com/clearlysuperior.
