Scratch resistant runs on a banana
Corning’s Gorilla Glass is going to be a major feature of the seven-inch display of the Android powered Samsung Galaxy Tab. Gorilla glass is an environmentally friendly alkali-aluminosilicate thin sheet glass and offering up to four times the strength in breakage resistance.

It provides a protective cover sheet for Galaxy Tab without getting in the way. The Gorilla glass provides damage resistance, improves the lifespan of portable display devices and offers a more scratch-resistant, durable and pristine viewing quality.

The glass is made by Corning Korea Company and is 'new technology' as far as the touch screen goes. However it was first developed during the Cold War. But the bendy tough glass failed to take off until it started to be tested in some of the more expensive smart phones.
