    Anybody waiting for their screen protectors? I've had them on my 3gs, 4, 4s and very good quality! Can't wait!

    Knowing PowerSupport, you're going to be waiting for quite a while.

    The page for the anti-glare is up. I'm personally waiting on a crystal set.

    I wonder how long it will take them to stock the films. The ipad3 took forever. And I doubt they will come in sets since the unsmooth back of the iphone5 does not lend itself to having a protector attached.

    I too love them and have had them on all my iPhones and iPads. I will rock it without until they are ready.

    My email reply from Power Support

    I emailed them asking about the films for the iPhone 5.....Response below

    I like PS but SGP have been just as good so I am ordering the clear to have at least something on when my phone arrives. Will see what anti glare gets released...

    Wow :eek: The Spigen SGP is $27.99 which seems expensive for just one....

    Most cases come with a cheap screen protector, so I'd probably use that until the PS is available. I just need to choose a case now :roll eyes:

    Edit...I just read more about the SGP. I didn't realize it was made of glass. That's kind of neat. I never had issues with PS though.

    Since the back of the iPhone 5 is made of Aluminum are you going to put a screen protector like the Power Support on it? Or are you going to just use a case?

    I've used power support cases since my second iPhone, the 3, and the films are the absolute best. However I always have bought the PS items in Japan, never from the (grossly overpriced) USA store. If I recall correctly PS in Japan had iPad 3 cases a couple months before the US vendor, and unlike the US vendor it was specific to the 3rd gen.

    Tunewear also makes excellent phone shells.

    As I'm going to Tokyo on Tuesday I will be looking to see if the cases for the 5 are available. Just have to suffer with the fact that my new phone will be sitting on my desk for a week before I get back!

    Are you using the Steinheil series or the Glas? I wanted to get power support but need something in the meantime. I was looking at the Ultra Crystal for $13.99. I was going to get BSE for now but I have it on my Blackberry and it does have the orange peel look, plus they won't be shipping until launch day. And I'm concerned about using the water on the iphone. Looks like the SGP is available to ship now so I might have it for Friday.

    I've always used PS crystal on my 3 iPads. Love their smooth surface. This time I'm also getting it for my iPhone 5. But knowing PS, it will take a while before it is available.

    I will still buy the PS once it is available.

    How much do you guys think they'll be around 20 and some change w/ shipping and tax? I love them but I won't pay that much usually there are promo codes or specials once in a while so I'll wait for that if so

    Thanks for pointing this out. I'm waiting for the anti-glare with clear back combo. Much cheaper than other companies also.

    I'm happy with my PowerSupport shields on my iPhone 4. Had it installed all 2 years I had the phone.
