Next you want to start with the most mild polish you can find and lightly polish the screen with another clean microfiber towel. It is important to always start with the LEAST abrasive polish possible - you can always polish it again if it isn't abrasive enough. Using a more aggressive polish off the bat will more than likely lead to more polishing later. A high quality automotive wax might just do the trick for you here. Rub some of the wax after vigorous shaking to mix between your fingers and check the level of abrasive and if it is really fine it should work just fine for this use.
I agree with this posting. For years I have used a very mild automotive polish on my cell phones, and blackberrys. Helps protect the unit and removes minor scratches from the screen. And I use it not only use it just on the screen, but on the entire housing. Keeps them looking clean and shiney and even helps repel small amounts of water, since the water would bead up.
