Watch Gorilla Glass 2 Get Stress Tested Against Other Glass

Having Gorilla Glass on a touch-device is a good bullet point to have. While the name may be marketing, the actual product is a huge plus for tablets and smartphones. In our experience, Gorilla Glass keeps touchscreens looking more pristine under harsh (or everyday use) conditions.

At CES 2012, Corning announced Gorilla Glass 2, which is just as tough as the original glass technology, but with an up-to-20 percent thinner profile. Corning says that thinner Gorilla Glass 2 will enable slimmer and sleeker devices, brighter images, and greater touch sensitivity.

We captured a strength test demo from the show floors of CES. Special thanks to Tom's Hardware reader Christopher Ly who volunteered to assist in the demo:

    Wouldn't it be better to have the backs of the iPhone 4 made of this? Rather than whatever is on there at the moment which shatters...

    I have to admit the stuff is good I've had it on 2 devices (motorola milestone & pro plus), the milestone did not have a single scratch on it after 2 years, I'd love to see it on more devices.
