In what is sure to be great news for smartphone owners of all persuasions, Corning is all set to show off the second generation of its amazing Gorilla Glass.
Details are scarce - the announcement is set to happen on Monday (US time) at CES - but the press release claims that the second iteration of the impressive glass will help mobile manufacturers create even better smartphones:
From the press release:
"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. Corning's latest innovation in Gorilla Glass technology is very well positioned to meet these challenges and enable broader touch technology penetration," said James R. Steiner, senior vice president and general manager, Corning Specialty Materials. Product details will be included in an announcement planned for Monday, Jan. 9.
I'm due for a new phone at some point this year, but I think I'm going to wait until handsets start landing with this before I buy in. Can't wait.
