Sadly this does not fit properly. By about 1/2mm too high. Width is fine.

I'm sorry to hear that, I believe that the vendor didn't have a Gemini to test it, so they made an (inaccurate) estimate of the screen size. I see that there's already a review on that item describing the problem (I guess it's yours, Pdajah), I'll put this info on the accessories thread too. The same vendor also sells a different type of protector for the Gemini, the upscreen one, which I fear might have the same size issue too.

Correct. Hopefully will stop Gemini owners from wasting money. Sadly that particular vendor of screen protectors is not very helpful from past experience.

It's also not glass, as I had expected (given the name - "airglass"). It's a piece of plastic. Oh well.

Another screen protector. Best so far for size but just too wide. Just about fits inside the top and bottom bezels.

Here's link to a company in USA that offers excellent screen protectors along with other accessories.

Have had good success with them over the years back to the heyday of PDA's and HPC's.

All the reviews on Amazon UK and eBay UK for screen protectors seems to indicate that for us Europeans we don't have access to screen protectors which fit correctly!

This screen protector does fit but tolerances are very small. It is the same size the screen protector as shipped on the Gemini.

See here on eBay also available on Amazon: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3x-FX-Clear-Scre...872.m2749.l2649

The Psion 5mx has small rubber feet to hold it in place better when typing etc with the device on a surface.

The Gemini doesn't, but I got these from Amazon UK and they work fine.

Stuck one near each corner and still have over 40 left!

Not as "sticky" as I'd like but with use hopefully that will come (and I filed them a bit to help roughen them up).

See the photo.

Hello Yev,
how do your rubber feet affect the Geminis ability to stand on it's hinge?
Is it stable enough to keep using the touchscreen, or will the Gemini tilt over when tapping the touchscreen?
I'd have thought the hinge would need to be rubberized for it to stand stably.
Regards,
DrW

Hello folks,

well, I am also on the search for accessories.

I've ordered an airglass screen protector, and while the quality is very good, it's too "high" as others have already noted here and on Amazon. It stands away from the screen at the top of the screen and it even cracked (yes, it's really glass !!!) when the device snapped closed. I have contacted the manufacturer awaiting a reply. If there is not positive reply, I will try to return the article.

In the meantime this is my attempt at protecting my Gemini when on the move:
Not perfect. Fits _tightly_ . Too thick. But it already protected my Gemini from damage, when I dropped it due to the bulkiness of the case....
You could easily fit two Geminis in there, so lots of space for accessories or a slim wallet. Not necessarily room for the charger, but at least enough room for a charging cable and some adapters.

@DrW, no problem. The 4 feet are the same height, and spread out evenly near the 4 corners it's very stable.

When I tap the touchscreen there are no issues, it works fine. Mind you I don't tap very hard, and my screen's hinge wobbles a bit anyway on tapping, even before I put on the feet!
