    Well Samsung has a few accessories listed on their site. I am most curious who will make a screen protector first. Zagg, Wrapsol? I think that is the first thing I want.

    That's what I was afraid of. Maybe there'll be more available when I'm eligible for the phone later next month. Not a big fan of zagg screens, such a pain to put on large displays. Do you think case-mate or boxwave will make cases? I'm new to the Win Phone scene...always been in ample supply of choices with my iPhone.

    You can count on this device being the flagship, so I am pretty sure most case manufacturers will be making products for it. But they may not be available by next week, will just have to wait and see how long it takes them.

    There won't be as many choices, but there will be fewer, higher quality options. I would assume that the Focus S will have gorilla glass, meaning a screen protector, and even a case for that matter aren't even an issue.

    Check out this drop test of a Galaxy S2 (Another Samsung device with gorilla glass):



    Or this scratch test:



    Gorilla glass is one tough cat!

    Thank you both! Arrrgh can't wait! Happy I didn't decide to jump ship prior to this device. I'm upgrade eligible 11/23 so hopefully there'll be some options by then...that said, maybe I won't even need em!

    I've been sitting on an upgrade since the end of April waiting for new devices! The Focus S can't come sooner!

    Haven't heard much about this brand. Have you used them before? To be honest, I have never used screen protector and am curious if there is much of a difference between them.

    You would be surprised. There is a HUGE difference between screen protectors. The best screen protectors are made by Bodyguardz, in my opinion.

    I've only use Zagg and loved them. I haven't used a screen protector since the iPhone 3G. I don't drop my phones and if I were to, I'd get it replaced.

    Zagg is very high quality as well.

    I am using it on Galaxy Tab 10.1

    This is the first brand name screen protector/skin that I've used to I don't know how it compares to the other big names like ZAGG or SGP. Before I bought it, I checked out some comments on a few forums and overall, it seems the response is positive.

    here's a video of how to install it:

    I can't find any cases. This is very annoying. The att store had a million cases for every phone, and zero for this the focus s. I can't imagine that my phone will not get scratched up by the time a case comes out.

    Has anyone tried using galaxy s 2 accessories with this phone? Seems to be same screen setup, thinking of buying a gs2 protector from sgp to try.

    Gs2 and gs2 skyrocket cases WILL NOT fit the Focus S. Headphone jack is on the opposite side for gs2 and the skyrocket is bigger.

    Casemate tough cases are coming out soon. Casemate dropped the ball on these. As did Zagg not having screen protection available.

    Yup, I got the Skinomi since they are the only game in town. Shame on Zagg and Wrapsol.

    Any thoughts on the screen protectors, understand the cases won't work. I am thinking of going to the ATT store to look at the regular GS2 in more detail to see if the screen protectors will work...

    Do you plan to follow-up on this to see if they do? If so, care to share if it's a case specifically for the Focus S or a generic case?

    Yeah, the rep texted me later on and said the UPS guy was really late they hadn't gotten them in yet. He is going to text me with an update (and hopefully pics) tomorrow morning. I am really hoping that it is going to be a case-mate tough case.

    I'm using an AGF gel case that I picked up at an AT&T store in Redmond, WA. However the AGF website (agfindings.com) does not have anything for the Focus S yet - or any Winphone for that matter.

    I'd like some kind of holster and belt clip, but will just carry it in my pocket with Skinomi film for now I guess. Hopefully some stuff comes out soon.
