Corning Gorilla Glass 2 Put To The TestCorning 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.
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.
