Corning will show off stronger glass for tablets and smartphones

Corning first repurposed its 1960s high-strength, sheet glass technology into “Gorilla Glass” for the original Apple iPhone in 2007. Since that time, Gorilla Glass has gone on to become one of the most popular ruggedized glass substrates used on tablets and smartphones.
 
Corning has announced that it will be unveiling Gorilla Glass 3 which promises a new composition with enhanced durability.

“These new innovations build on the increasingly important and continually evolving role of highly engineered glass technologies in delivering improved product performance and functionality through touch capabilities, protective cover glass, and device connectivity,” said Wendell P. Weeks, chairman, chief executive officer, and president at Corning.

Corning says that it would be discussing the new orderable Gorilla Glass 3 product and offering hourly demonstrations on the new material.
 
Corning announced Gorilla Glass 2 at CES 2012, so there should be no surprise at what Corning will announce at CES 2014…
