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

A problem I have with plastic screen protectors is this: they generally cause the screen reflectivity to change and fingerprint protection is lost(oleophobic coatings), meaning they degrade the screen by quite a bit just by applying them. Furthermore, the tendency for a screen to scratch is determined by the material hardness - and since plastic is MUCH softer than glass, protective films pick up many more scratches than an unprotected screen would.
The best part about this is that people have a habit of keeping these things on much longer than is suitable - meaning that they effectively exchange having a very beautiful screen for a scratch-prone, poorer-opacity, fingerprint-collecting protective film that they can peel off by the time they get their next phone upgrade to leave it with a pristine glass for the safe to look at (or wherever they end up. So effectively for most modern phones, screen protectors end up doing exactly what you intend on preventing...
