Corning plans to showcase its specialty in glass at CES
2012, with products that offer increased functionality
is smaller form factors; touch technology; connected
devices in new application spaces; and sleek, durable
large-format design aesthetics.
A key feature of Corning's CES exposure will be the
introduction of Corning Gorilla Glass 2, the next
generation of the popular, damage-resistant cover glass
for consumer electronic devices.
"Corning Gorilla Glass has been a tremendous success
for Corning, enjoying excellent market acceptance
across mobile device industries. Handset and tablet
device manufacturers are clearly driving toward higher
functionality from thinner designs. Corning's latest
innovation in Gorilla Glass technology is very well
positioned to meet these challenges and enable broader
touch technology penetration," said James R. Steiner,
senior vice president and general manager, Corning
"As we did last year, we'll provide consumers and
customers visiting the Corning booth the opportunity to
test first-hand the outstanding damage resistance and
flexibility of this industry-leading, ultra-thin, and
tough specialty glass," Steiner added.
Corning Gorilla Glass is currently featured on more
than 30 major brands and designed into more than 575
product models, spanning more than 500 million units
