According to Pedersen, the company's Web site has more than 1,500 different models of the Invisible Shield; each one a template that's designed specifically to cover some device (like an iPod) from head to toe without obstructing any of the openings or buttons that have to remain uncovered.
I was impressed enough by the material that I asked my colleague Fritz Nelson here at TechWeb TV if he would volunteer his BlackBerry Pearl to be covered by the material (a template didn't exist for the smartphone I had at the time). You can see them applying the material to Fritz's BlackBerry in the video and today (a day later), Fritz was not happy with the outcome.
One problem Fritz had with the Invisible Shield is that his BlackBerry lost its slippery finish. In other words it had more grip to its surface than it did before the shield was applied. Fritz used the word "sticky." Another problem that Fritz ranted about was some newfound glare that he had never experienced before when looking at the BlackBerry's display.
Fortunately, the material is pretty easy to remove and, even if you want to give it a try, it won't set you back that much if it turns out to be a loss. Pedersen says the price ranges from $10 to $25 depending on the device being protected. Here's the video:
