Corning Gorilla Glass 2 sent to makers for gear
Corning's Gorilla Glass 2 unveiled at CES has shipped to device makers, and consumers will be able to buy these products sometime this spring, likely by May, the company revealed. The new damage-resistant glass is said to be slimmer, offer brighter images, and have greater touch sensitivity than its predecessor. Some of the companies that confirmed tablets that will use Gorilla Glass 2 at MWC include ASUS and Acer.
ASUS is one of the companies that is committed to using Gorilla Glass 2 for its new tablets unveiled at MWC, including the Infinity and Transformer Pad 300.
Corning's revelation suggests these tablet could show up as early as May, but if it's neither Acer or ASUS, some other company's products may be out then with Gorilla Glass 2 covering their touch panels.
