    How many of you would like to have an oleophobic screen on the pre and upcoming webOS devices? For those who don't know, Oleophobic screen reduce the greasy prints left on your screen from your finger tips. (iPhone and iTouch have them) Not only does it look nicer, it feels better too. Sorry if other posts are around like this..i have not seen them. Also I know you can buy screen protectors for the pre which are oleophobic...but that's lame. The end.

    Oleophobic GLASS screen. As long as it's still plastic, it will still scratch easily, meaning it'll have a screen protector on it anyway.

    Now if they made oleophobic screen protectors, that would be something else.

    who gives a f? But since you mentioned it, many call it an itouch and wikipedia even references it even if it's not the official name.

    The hero DOES indeed have one. Not much help there. some. I would rather the REST of the next palm device be in a texture like the touchstone back was. I can handle a screen being greasy, but not the whole dang phone! Off topic, I had to switch to T-mo after left my job, and am currently using Android in various flavors. I miss the ease and simplicity of WebOS alot. Hopefully the HP deal with bring this marvelous construction to many many many phones and tablets.

    And please make the next Palm phone with the same kind of glass on the Zune HD, it's "gorilla glass", unscratchable under day to day circumstances. I've owned Zunes for 3 years and not once scratched it. Scratched my Pre on the first day, but to be fair, never scratched it again.

    I don't really notice a difference between the Pre and the iPhone's screen. The Pre tends to look a little smudgy but doesn't seem to affect the view that much, but the iPhone gets these thick lines on them which really make the thing look like you just ate a pizza beforehand. I don't really think they wipe off much differently either...


    Also, you know it was going to be called the iTouch before the researcher (who was apparently absent during the naming of the iPad) pointed out the obvious problem there.

    Wow, that's surprising. I found myself obsessively cleaning the Pre's screen when I had it. Thankfully Palm was nice enough to include a pouch that doubled as a "rock polisher" or I'd have gone nuts.

    But as for the two in comparison, the Pre screen has an "oily" look to it in sunlight, and you can clearly see the dots that make up the touchscreen sensors. I have to look reeeaaaally hard to see them on the iPhone. I noticed this on the Droid Eris, too.

    Also since the Pre's entire face has the same material, the fingerprints aren't necessarily just limited to the screen's viewable area. This was pretty much my #1 hardware gripe with the Pre. But I can see how it would have been difficult to maintain that sort of design with a piece of glass in there somehow. The Pixi would be a much better candidate IMHO for glass due to the "slab" design.

    The iphone and the pre have the same resolution. The Pre is brighter and more crisp... but of course, the screen is smaller.

    They compared the Samsung Galaxy S and the Iphone in a hands-on video, and the Super Amoled Screen makes the Iphone look SOOO bad.

    Coincidentally I have stacks of microfiber cloths from HP laptops at work. They work awesome for a quick polish - I keep one close to each touchstone at the various places I frequent.

    Haha, go go HP.

    How durable are coatings like that? I've had eyeglasses with similar coatings and after 6-9 months it basically wore off.

    Why is it everytime I scroll past this thread I can't help but wonder why someone wants a screen that has a fear of margarine? ;-)
