Otterbox introduces Alpha Glass fortified glass screen protector for iPhone, Galaxy S5

Rugged accessories producer Otterbox has announced its introduction of a new screen protection product for iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy S5. The Alpha Glass consists of fortified glass that features reactive touch and anti-shatter properties. Suitable for standalone use as a screen protector, Alpha Glass is installed by lightly coating the protector with its accompanied alcohol wipe, clean with the microfiber cloth and align it against the screen. Gentle pressure secures the protector, pushing out air that can create bubbles. Alpha Glass is removable, with no leftover residue. Priced at $30, the new screen protectors can be purchased online through Otterbox.
