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.

RE: Just skip to synthetic sapphire and be done with it...

You are correct, sapphire is considered fairly brittle. Theoreticaly, the only things that can scratch it are diamond and other sapphires, but that's potentially pointless if it cracks the first time it's smashed against a door handle or falls to the floor,
And remember, watch crystals are only about 38 - 46mm across and are often 2-3mm thick. For a phone, we'd be talking about a much broader unsupported sheet of potentially thinner crystal, neither of which are good for impact resistance. We've got phones that're approaching 7-8mm, we can't have the glass surface be half of that...
