Looks like Gorilla Glass is fast becoming the trend among tablets and smartphones - not only is Samsung slapping it on their Galaxy S devices, but the Tab as well. What's so great about Gorilla Glass? To quote Wikipedia:
Corning attributes the choice of Gorilla Glass superiority not only for "unparalleled damage resistance and protection" but:
- "Thinner form factor: Gorilla Glass retains its performance advantage over standard chemically strengthened substrates even when used in thin form factors. Currently, Gorilla Glass is available as-drawn in thicknesses ranging from .5 millimetres (0.020 in) – 2.0 millimetres (0.079 in).
- Pristine surface quality: Because it is formed using Corning’s proprietary fusion process, Gorilla Glass offers the same high-quality pristine surface available with all of our high-technology display substrates.
