It can, but it will drive you insane trying to do it...

Let me inform you about Sony warranty policy about the screen protector they added.
IF YOU MOVE IT, YOU VOID YOUR WARRANTY ANF THE SONY LOGO IS APPLY ON THE SCREEN PROTECTOR.

If damage is apply on the screen protector, call Sony Customer Care.
If not then It's best you apply your own on top of that screen protector.

What about the protector at the back? I remove today gently and put a 3rd party one it look good,can't notice without clearer look.

The "If you remove the screen protector you'll void your warranty" does not apply in all countries. Just email or contact your local Sony office or store and ask them.

As this is my first post on XDA, I'm not allowed to post an outside link.
But type in my screen name, dot blogspot for a how-to on film removal...

well you can remove both the front and the back films ! removing the front shatter proof film is kinda hard and trust me its not worth it , you're gonna end up with device with no sony logo and a screen with no oleophobic coating ! removing the back one is much easier !
