Corning demonstrated its latest Gorilla Glass 2 at CES, showing that it can withstand the same battering as the original, despite being 20% slimmer. See our smashing video.
Some 600 smartphone and other mobile device manufacturers use Corning's durable Gorilla Glass, the outer layer of the touchscreen display. At CES this week, Corning announced Gorilla Glass 2, which is just as strong as the original, but about 20% thinner.
Corning also proclaims that Gorilla Glass 2 will provide brighter images and better touch sensitivity.
Gorilla Glass 2 will protect Samsung's Galaxy Note, the company's newest smartphone, also announced at CES this week; and that's just for starters. Acer and Asus have already announced that they will use Gorilla Glass 2 on devices in 2012.
We had a chance to get a demonstration of the pressure Gorilla Glass 2 can withstand at a press event Monday night. As you can see in the video embedded below, our host, Jon Pesansky applied up to 120 pounds of pressure--and the glass survived.
