Corning has announced that it will showcase the next generation of its Gorilla Glass material at next week’s 2012 International CES. Although the company states that product details will be announced on Monday, January 9, it did release the following statement from James R.
Steiner, senior vice president and general manager of Corning Specialty Markets: “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.” According to his official biography, late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was instrumental in getting Corning to produce Gorilla Glass for use in the iPhone; the material has been used in all subsequent iOS devices..
