I read somewhere that TyTn I screen protector would not fit the TyTn II. Both screens are 2.8 inches yet the TyTn II is about a mm shorter. I don't know how far this is true as yet I do not have the TyTn II. But if this is true than one must be absolutely sure that a protector specifically designed for TyTn II is procured. Just a not of caution.

The TyTN screen indeed is slightly bigger, but the p3300 screen actually has exactly identical dimensions. My hunch is that is what Brando has done. :)

I'm wondering whether I should get the Brando UltraClear or wait for Martin Fields to release one for the TyTn II.

Martin Fields have always been my first choice for screen protectors (two previous Sony Ericsson Phones, PSP, HTC S710, Sony digital camera) as they are very easy to apply and are crystal clear.

The screen protector supplied with the TyTn II in the box is rubbish, lots of bubbles and generally poor. I just hope it doesn't have any sticky adhesive when I take it off to replace it.

Dah... Which one to pick?

Hmm I see that Brando currently has 2 different Screenprotectors available for the Kaiser / TyTN 2

Brando Workshop Ultra Clear and the Brando Workshop Anti-Glare Screen Protectors.

I remember from my Nokia 770 and Palm T|X that I preferred the Anti-Glare ones but for my (now returned) Nokia E90 I had a Ultra clear.

Decisions decisions.

Are there already people who tried either one of these or can make a suggestion?

The price difference is 1$ in favor of Anti-Glare one.

I decided not to wait untill I could figure out what the best would be and ordered the Brando Workshop Ultra Clear Screen Protector (2x).

I'll post my experiences here when I receive them.

For now all my experiences with the Brando stuff has been excellent.

They only came out today, so there's only the user experience from other HTC devices (Touch etc) that could be of help

Yes, of course but what I was after was not specific for the Kaiser but in general the differences between those 2 screen protectors from Brando.

For almost every type of device with a screen Brando produce these slap-on-plastics.

I have experience with both and apart from the cheaper one being a little thicker and less flexible, the other one seems to be better for the colours and transparency.

I'm sorry... do you mean the Ultra Clear is better? Or is the Anti-Glare one better? Also, do you have to cut these to size or what? I like taking my phones apart to put on the screen protectors, looks like they're not there.

I used the Boxwave Ultra-Clear p/n BWCTC-C8125. It fit Kaiser perfectly as well as my 8525. I prefer the glossy protectors over the flat non-glare types,

I mean to say the Ultra Clear is the better one.

although a little bit more difficult to apply than the Anti-Glare one, it does pay of when it's on :)

Given the fact that I use the TyTN II for navigation, and the fact that my car has a panoramic roof, the utraclear is unusable in my case. I Need anti-glare.

Really depends, in my car I found that the non glare screens were harder to see vs the clear. If the clear screen is at a bad angle to you though, it will act like a mirror and also be hard to see. I bought both and played till I got the best viewing, for me it was clear.

How difficult was it to install? ie, With some screen protectors, I have bubbles or fingerprints and then have to clean and reapply, etc.

This time I washed my hands and worked on a lint free cloth. I peeled off the Kaiser's shipping sticker from the display and applied my screen protector by placing it on edge at one side of the screen. Then I carefully let it slowly lay down from that edge, using the applicator card to smooth it. This time, not 1 bubble!

Just received the anti-glare today. Absolutely a perfect fit (even better than the already very close to perfect fit I was accustomed to with Brando).

For me, Brando makes the best screenprotectors, period!

Also the TouchFLO motion seems unhindered ... :)

What model are you guys ordering for on Boxwave?

I cant find this model # BWCTC-C8125 anywhere.

I had posted that number from the package that I used on my Kaiser. Here's the link to it, it was a spare for my 8525 and it fit the Kaiser perfectly. I'm no Boxwave promoter, their accys have been so-so in my opinion. I do like their screen protectors however, but I'd give Brando a try from what I've read here.
