Toddy Smart Cloth annihilates fingerprints – CrackBerry has 7 to give away!

Fingerprints and smudges happen. No matter what mobile device you have - be it a BlackBerry smartphone, tablet, or even a computer monitor - they seem to attract fingerprints and other foreign matter like a magnet. Now, BlackBerry OS 7 phones with their touchscreens offer even more opportunity to get smudged and dirtied.

Enter the Smart Cloth by Toddy Gear. These cloths, in a wide variety of colors and styles, features silk microfiber on one side and plush microfiber on the other. Both sides offer superior cleaning no matter the surface, and - for those of you adverse to germs - the Smart Cloth is protected by the AEGIS microbe shield. It's an great way to keep your phone clean with out sprays or wipes.

In the north hall at CES 2012, I got a chance to try these cloths for ourselves. While we were impressed with the way the cloth cleaned my Torch 9860, it was the cloth's effectiveness on cleaning my BlackBerry PlayBook's screen that really impressed me. Over the months, I've pretty much covered my PlayBook in fingerprints. After about 30 seconds with the Smart Cloth, those prints were gone. Even those really bad prints that are almost impregnated into the screen were no match for this cloth.

Todd - yes, that Todd - of Toddy Gear hooked us up with seven Smart Cloths to give out to our readers. Just leave a comment on this post to enter to win. One entry per person, and the contest ends this Sunday at midnight Pacific time. Great products are afoot here at CES 2012, and we'll be hard at work scouring the floor for them.

man i need one of those, with three kids touching my phone and playbook I can never keep it clean. Would love it to clean my glasses and other devices.

I would love to win cause my wife is always trying to get the fingerprints off my playbook. I even caught her just before she was going to use windex on it! :( So I really need this before she ruins my screen!!!!!!

Yes please, another cleaning cloth for my Bold 9930 and future PlayBook, of course!
Thanks in advance CrackBerry & Todd of Toddy Gear!

I hate screen protectors even though they hide some of the fingerprints. The 9930, PlayBook, and me would all love one of these!!!!!

So a smart cloth for a smart phone and playbook, hmmmm. What a perfect combo. Count me in too for one.

I NEED IT I WANT IT I NEED IT I WANT IT I NEED IT I WANT IT I NEED IT I WANT IT I NEED IT I WANT IT I NEED IT I WANT IT I NEED IT I WANT IT I NEED IT I WANT IT I NEED IT I WANT IT

I would love one of these please. My 49th birthday is on the 23rd and this would make a nice gift. ;-)

I am always having tonwipe fingerprints off of my PlayBook! Nothing has worked well enough. Would love to try out these! Thanks for the contest Todd and CrackBerry!

I'd love to have one. It is tough to keep both Playbooks clean with myself and the family constantly on them...

Yes I'd love ... use microfiber cloths everywhere ... but since there are so many comments, perhaps I'll look into purchasing one?

The wife would be happy, cause as she "says" it would keep me from using everything to keep my precious 9900 and playbook clean and wife proof. lol

9900, PlayBook, TouchPad & Creative Zen.........
Actually NEED this in my life :) send one my way?

long list of BlackBerrys....now I'm Bold 9900 7.1.0.190 & PlayBook 1.0.8.4985

GO BOLD OR GO HOME

like what i have to say? hit up the wonderful like/thanks buttons :D

Great video clip ... until I saw the "Best Buy" Press pouch.

Should've covered up the Best Buy name considering how much they have a hate on for Blackberries :(

..PLEASE pick me! If you don't pick me for anything else ever, PLEASE pick me for this. Whenever my 11 month old daughter plays with my PlayBook its a rap! I get all kinda smudges, finger prints, you name it all over the screen that I can't wipe off, they just smudge even more. I can use this soo badly. - Loyal TeamBlackBerry User & Abuser- Bret

Im in! Got my PB for Christmas and this will really help me not want to go insane with the constant finger prints due to the fact that I CANT SEEM to put this thing DOWN! No seriously. My BB Style is getting jealous!

I need to clean that screen too! When i do pick it up, ive become accustomed to using a touch screen. so i really need one of these!

It is getting expensive using two lens cleaning wipes every time I break open my OtterBox. Would love one of these.

I get rather wound up by the fingerprints on my playbook and phone and keep a cloth constantly with it, and while the cloth that comes with the playbook is one of the best I've tried it still gets beaten so I'd love to get one of these to annihilate those smudges!

I'm completely neurotic about fingerprints haha. It would be awesome if I didn't need to use my sleeve or shirt to wipe the screen on my 9850 :)

Having lost my BlackBerry cloth somewhere in Philadelphia airport, I really need a new one as my PlayBook has to be as dirty as Joe's. Also my Torch 9850 is getting as bad too.
Thanks to Mr Todd for his gracious offer.

These look really awesome and I'd get a ton of use out of it with my playbook, touchpad, soon to have IPad (won) and my Blackberry!!!!!

Yes Please!!!! Please Please Please Please send me one! Pretty Please with sugar and mayo on top!! Thanks and good luck to everyone!

Hey now! I would love to win this for my phone and tablet...I'm gonna need to keep my 2.0 nice and shiny! :D

I'm curious...Is Windex a bad thing to use on my playbook' screen? On a paper towel or cloth of course! I can see a purpose deigned cleaning cloth like thi coming in useful though! >hint hint

Awesome! I have heard about this product, but as many things go, I thought it was just hype. Now that it comes through this source, I'd definitely believe it does work.

Gahhhhh! Fingerprints are the bein of my existence! And face goo.... I'm one of those people always cleaning my screen, even if it is already clean. One of these cloths would help to reduce my CDO (it's like OCD, but alphabetical, like it should be!).

In my business, we love fingerprints... but I hate 'em on my Playbook. A Smart Cloth from Toddy Gear would be a great way to eradicate them.
