NewerTech KXs Line of Screen Armor Wins Silver Stevie Award at 2014 American Business Awards

PR_KXs_2014SilverStevieNewerTech announced today that the NewerTech NuGuard KXs Impact X-Orbing Screen Armor for iPad and iPhone won a Silver Stevie Award at the 2014 American Business Awards ceremony held in San Francisco on September 12.

Awarded High Honors by Industry Professionals
More than 3,300 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. The NewerTech KXs Line of X-Orbing Screen Armor won Silver in the New Product or Service of the Year, Consumer Product category. Specialized judging committees determined the Stevie Award placements from among the finalists during final judging. Other 2014 Stevie Award winners included Dell Software, SoftPro, Sony, Delta, Epson, Vision Tek, and GE Software.

“NewerTech’s mission is to provide high-quality products with the design and functionality that users seek,” said Larry O’Connor, President, NewerTech. “Our customers are the most important critics and this type of customer-driven recognition is a rewarding affirmation.”

NewerTech KXs Screen Armor Features Triple Layer of X-Orbing Protection for iPad, iPhone
Inside each NewerTech KXs Screen Armor product are three separate layers that combine into one ultra-thin, 0.28mm thick protective shield:

  • Protection Layer: Crystal clear display coating keeps dust and dirt away from the iDevice’s screen with no image distortion, yellowing or hazing over time.
  • Absorption Layer: Military-grade kinetic energy X-Orbing protection layer is hammer-hit tough, with a “3H” hardness scale rating and can even self-heal from minor impact dents.
  • Adhesion Layer: Self-adhesive layer requires no water or other liquids to install and provides a bubble-free look with no sticky residue if removed or repositioned.

KXs Screen Armor is the ideal complement to NewerTech KX cases, which provide military-grade protection for iPhone and iPad in a slim design. Multiple configurations for KXs Screen Armor are available, including full-size and case-friendly designs.

Like The Oscars for Corporate America
The American Business Award program, created in 2002 and nicknamed “The Stevies”, is the only business awards program in the United States that honors and generates public recognition of corporate and executive achievements worldwide. Past American Business Award winners have included Apple, Oracle, Hilton Hotels, and AT&T.

  • I know the curved edges present a challenge, do you have an iPhone 6/6+ (I have 6 4.7″) full coverage in the works? I want full front glass protection, but, no case.

    • Hi Benjamin, we can’t reveal release dates for future products on the Rocket Yard, but please bookmark us for future announcements.

      • Oh, I wasn’t expecting a date, just hoping it’s in the works is all. I’ve been very happy w/other OWC products. :)

        The iloome screen protector, which is the only one that covers the whole top of iPhone 6/6+, is not getting the best reviews, partly for touch sensitivity affected, and also the way they cover the curved edges allows dirt/water to build up, and may get caught (leaves a slight gap).

        In the meantime, I’m switching carriers, once things have settled there, I’ll be ordering KX for my iPad Mini. I have a different glass protector on my iPhone 5 that I got discounted 6 months ago, and absolutely luv it! Used to be a major zagg invisible shield fan.

        I think I’m going to get a simple cheap screen protector or, if I can get on sale, regular zagg invisible shield, hoping full screen glass KX coming soon. :)
