CES’12 – Corning Gorilla Glass 2 revealed

After much anticipation, Corning has finally showcased a new generation of its famed Gorilla Glass at the CES’12.

The Corning Gorilla Glass has become one of the star of many devices such as the Motorola Droid Razr.

The Corning Gorilla Glass 2 is engineered for the new generation of razor-thin devices; it is about 20 percent than the previous Gorilla Glass. While Corning has made the glass thinner, it maintains that the major characteristics of the glass, such as its damage resistance, toughness, touch sensitivity and brighter images will remain the same.

According to James R. Steiner, Senior VP, Corning Specialty Materials “Corning Gorilla Glass has enjoyed tremendous market adoption in the high-growth mobile handset and computing device market, providing a replacement for plastic and legacy soda-lime glass as a protective cover and elegant design solution.”

Corning has also recognized the Windows OS as a popular OS and designed the glass to suit the requirements of Windows devices.

“We’re very excited about the introduction of Corning’s thin, high-performing Gorilla Glass 2, As Windows continues to bring new experiences to customers on new devices, we look to Corning to bring innovative, durable glass solutions that enable brighter images and greater touch sensitivity.” Nick Parker, VP, World OEM marketing, Microsoft, was quoted as saying.

We believe that in the age of thin mobiles and tablets and curved glass screens, Corning has made a mark in the dynamically rising device screen market.
