Smudged screens? Clean them in a jiffy

TOKYO - Cleaning the display of your mobile device can be a pain, as a normal cleaning cloth just smears the fingerprints or grime.

Office-supplies company King Jim's iKoroKoro range of touch-panel cleaning rollers has a new model for screens with protective film on them, technology-news website Akihabara News reported.

Roll the device over the display and it "will become very clean instantaneously".

The cleaning device, with a price of 1,260 yen (S$16), will be released on Oct 4. Spare tape costs 525 yen.
