Gorilla Glass 2 debuts

CES 2012: Worlds most famous glass

Corning introduced their second generation of the Gorilla Glass product line this morning in Las Vegas. Gorilla Glass 2 enables thinner product designs with up to a 20 percent reduction in glass thickness, while maintaining the industry-leading damage resistance, toughness, and scratch resistance. These benefits provide electronics manufacturers with design flexibility as they address consumer demand for increasingly high-performing, touch-sensitive, and durable mobile devices.

Product qualification and design implementation for Corning Gorilla Glass 2 are underway and companies are expected to unveil new devices using Gorilla Glass 2 during the coming months.

Gorilla Glass has set the industry standard for damage-resistant cover glass, and is now the most widely deployed cover glass, used by more than 30 major brands and designed into more than 575 product models, spanning more than 500 million units worldwide. Corning Gorilla Glass is expected to reach more than $700 million in 2011 sales, nearly triple their 2010 volume.

yep gorilla glass is a joke, hit it with a sledge hammer and it is fine, yet drop it a couple of feet onto carpet and it shatters. I don't know about you but my days are not routinely going around fighting wild sledge hammers.

They show the bend pressure test vid but not a drop test. Maybe enough iphone 4 drop test vid on the net so it doesn't matter.
