We’re not sure how much more Corning can improve on the scratch resistant and shatter proof Gorilla Glass, but somehow they are prepared to dazzle us at CES next week. The company announced the “next generation” of this “industry-leading, ultra-thin, and tough specialty glass”, aptly calling it Gorilla Glass 2. I remember attending their booth last year and Corning put on quite a show – see the video here. This year they plan to do the same, promising “increased functionality from smaller form factors; touch technology; connected devices in new application spaces; and sleek, durable large-format design aesthetics”… basically Gorilla Glass 2 is perfect for any manufacturer that has a glass display.

    Hopefully the next iphone has this…apple needs to stop being cheap on their glass

    • aka

      iPhones come with Gorilla Glass..people need to stop abusing their phones.

    • Adam

      Apple needs to design a phone not designed to self-destruct. Yeah, it’s gorilla glass, but it’s easily the most broken phone out there just due to the design of the device. Every single other company has the common sense to cover the edges of the glass. Apple puts looks ahead of practicality.

  • Zack

    sure gorilla glass is probably the best out there, but i think there’s still allot of room to improve.

  • Jacquio

    Adam raises a great point. Tempered glass is nearly impossible to break from head-on impacts. It is also extremely fragile when the impact occurs on the edge of the glass. Covering the edges is just common sense.
