PDA screen protectors
Thinking of getting a Dell Axim X5. The screen protectors come in a 12-pack at a rather exorbitant price of $36 (3 bucks apiece).
1. Are there cheaper / better third party alternatives?
2. How often does one need to change the screen protector? I will be using my Axim mainly for reading e-books and listening to mp3's, not really planning to do much organising and stuff like that.
3. Any reason NOT to get a Dell Axim? I don't mind the size.

Screen protector prices are like that... usually cost $3 a piece... I got used to it liaoz...
Usually a low-usage user like yourself would not scratch the screen protector a lot... so 1 piece can probably last you 8 months or more... for me I usually change once every 6 months...

Thanks for the feedback. I expected the protectors to be like 50 cents apiece. Guess I was wrong.
Getting the Basic one direct from Dell + the screen protectors.
Lots of left-over "small" capacity CF cards I can use for data storage.
You got lobang?

Yeah man, have used my screen protector since November last year and it seems nowhere near to replacement time.
