That might be impossible since they're most likely applied using high temperature - like car's windshield.

I read on one of the reviews that the anti-shatter screen protector which is already fitted is near enough impossible to remove, plus if you do manage to get it off then so does the Sony badge :-\
So I won't be removing mine but will probably buy a Zagg HD screen protector, had one on my S3 and it was soo much better than the standard one they do!

That was true for CES demo units - they printed Sony logo on the film and not on the glass. In retail units, Sony / Xperia logos are below the glass so removing the film will not take them away.

Oh ok, though the Spanish review I read last week had a retail version and in there it stated that, can you provide information on where you got your info from pls?

I heard that sony applies screen protectors to their phones. Does anyone know if the xperia Z will ship with a pre-applied front and back protector?

If so, what would be the need to put on a third party screen protector?

I pre-ordered from handtech.uk to New York ... well lets hoping it will have the protectors already on by Sony.

It's been said before. Sony applies anti-shatter film on both front and back of Xperia Z. It helps the device survive fall damage ( look up youtube videos, it really does work ) but it's not scratch-proof, so Sony bundles another screen-protector which you can apply on top of anti-shatter film to prevent scratches to the film itself. You can apply it on top of anti-shatter film without worsening screen quality or responsiveness.

Now, you can remove the anti-shatter film pretty easily, and the glass beneath it is as scratch resistant as Gorilla Glass 2 etc. ( tested by Erica ) and it is still shatter resistant because the glass is tempered, but the film applied by Sony strenghtens the device so ideally it shouldn't be removed.
