"You may be holding some of it in your hands right now and not even know it. Gorilla Glass was developed by Corning Inc. and is now commonly used to protect the screens of smartphones, tablets and even HDTVs. It’s a thin, damage-resistant kind of glass that relies on compression and large ions to make its surface less likely to be scratched or broken."
Praise for Gorilla
"The newest version is the strongest yet. Gorilla Glass 3 features Native Scratch Resistance, which dents and deforms rather than cracking and splintering as other screens do. Damage is 40 percent less visible and offers a 40 percent increase in its structural stability. This means that any gouges from house keys or loose pocket change much less visible and far less likely expand and spread the next time you drop your phone."
"We all know and love Gorilla Glass. You know the stuff; it protects the displays of most smartphones, tablets and even HDTV’s that are currently on the market."
"Phone case. None. I know I’m tempting fate, but the Gorilla glass hasn’t yet let me down, and if you’re going to buy a phone for its slimness and beauty, why bury it in plastic?"
"Gorilla Glass. Heard of it? Sure you have. It's on loads of smartphones these days, and it's widely regarded as one of the most significant mobile technologies in the past few years.”
"Most of us know Corning as the maker of Gorilla Glass, the super tough glass that's become an almost ubiquitous feature when it comes to large-screened smartphones of today."
"It's a laptop that stands out in a crowd; it does look good, and it feels comfortable to use. Its looks are dominated by the use of Gorilla glass: both sides of the screen are clad with the stuff and it can even be found on the palm rest."
“Really, HP has hit a home run here: the Gorilla Glass Envy 14 Spectre is both unique and drop dead gorgeous. It will turn heads. It will make you smile and feel proud if you have even a smidgen of vanity.”
"We just met with Corning during CES in Las Vegas to check out its new Gorilla Glass 2 panels for smartphones and tablets. The new glass is 20% thinner than before, but just as strong and scratch resistant as the original Gorilla Glass. The thinner build will surely help manufacturers make smaller and lighter smartphones."
"We mentioned it yesterday, but it's worth saying again: Gorilla Glass 2 is here. Corning is known for developing some remarkable screen technology, and Gorilla Glass 2 is without a doubt the king of its glass display jungle."
"Corning's got some new Gorilla Glass on display here at CES, and it's really, really durable. How durable? Durable enough to stonewall our best attempts to crack it. And we lift weights."
"Pop quiz: What's new, thinner and still made of Gorillas? Gorilla Glass 2, of course. A few days ago we saw the announcement that Corning was bringing the well-named scratch-resistant glass back to CES thinner than ever -- while also keeping it just as structurally strong."
"Smartphones and other mobile devices would not be as tough as they are without a nice display being furnished with Gorilla Glass, and while there are alternatives to this material, it seems that Gorilla Glass is going to carry on being the daddy in the Smartphone jungle for some time."
"Well, we knew it was coming and here it is. Corning has officially announced the next generation in their widely popular protective glass, Gorilla Glass 2. The newer material allows for the same scratch resistant and damage prevention while reducing the thickness by 20 percent."
"Corning has officially announced Gorilla Glass 2, the company's next generation of damage-resistant glass. Gorilla Glass 2 is 20% thinner than its predecessor and will be featured on slimmer and sleeker devices, while producing brighter images, greater touch sensitivity, and the same toughness we all love."
"The screens of both devices feature Gorilla Glass and Splashback technology making them highly durable."
"The Corning Gorilla glass, for example, is able to prevent your keys scratching the screen, and interestingly, the components under the hood are sprayed with a nano material to keep water out, in case you spill water or wine on the Razr."
"The convex Gorilla Glass screen flaunts some of the best workmanship we've ever seen on a mobile device and it fits so perfectly that barely a speck of dust can get caught in its frame."
"Boasting a glass face, diamond-cut aluminium edges and a vibrant 4.3-inch display for vivid images, Motorola RAZR also sports Kevlar fibre and Corning Gorilla Glass to help the screen stand up to scratches and scrapes."
"The little phone will also be fairly tough with a strengthened stainless steel casing, a Kevlar-fiber back cover, and a Gorilla Glass display."
