There are many fortified display options out there, but when it comes to Android devices Corning Gorilla Glass is definitely the most popular. Whether this glass is better, or it is just brand loyalty, there is no doubt that the addition of Gorilla Glass makes users feel much more confident. Next year looks to be another successful year for out little green robot, and Corning has just announced that it will be bringing the second generation of Gorilla Glass to CES.

We know that Corning was working with Lotus Glass last year. Lotus Glass would bring better performance to high resolution devices, managing intense temperature changes more efficiently. Thinner smartphones are starting to gain more popularity, though, and that is what Gorilla Glass 2 is all about.

Corning Gorilla Glass has been a tremendous success for Corning, enjoying excellent market acceptance across mobile device industries. Handset and tablet device manufacturers are clearly driving toward higher functionality from thinner designs. As we did last year, we’ll provide consumers and customers visiting the Corning booth the opportunity to test first-hand the outstanding damage resistance and flexibility of this industry-leading, ultra-thin, and tough specialty glass.James R.

Many of us are not willing to give up “ruggedness” for thinnes, though. Corning is still boasting the resistance of its glass, so be sure that your devices will still be very well protected against sratches, drops and any type of physical damage. The press release mentions that we will be able to test it first-hand at CES, so be sure that we will be there, trying to beat up that glass as hard as we can.

Corning is also exploring the benefits of Gorilla Glass in larger displays. This glass may be featured in car panels, larger displays, home appliances, etc. There will be some demonstrations at the CES booth, so be sure to keep your eyes open for that, as well. They will be displaying an 82-inch display, touch-enabled automobile interior (sounds exciting!), and a centerpiece video wall, all protected by Gorilla Glass.

Stay tuned for more coverage about Gorilla Glass 2, as well as other products from CES. Do you prefer Corning Gorilla Glass over other fortified glasses? Check out Corning’s new videos, as well as the press release, for more details.
