Corning has announced that it will debut Gorilla Glass 3, an improved version of the glass likely used in the iPhone, at CES 2013. The new glass is said to offer a 40% reduction in the number of visible scratches and 50% boost in retained strength after the glass becomes flawed.

The Corning booth, #14813 Central Hall, will highlight the company's newest specialty glass solutions and their benefits for today's consumer electronics device trends. Corning plans to introduce two new products at CES 2013: Corning Gorilla Glass 3, a new glass composition with durability enhancements; and Optical Cables by Corning, fiber-based, device-to-device connectivity solutions that significantly extend the data transmission range past the limits of copper-based cables. Full product details will be included in announcements planned for Monday, Jan. 7.

"This year at CES, Corning will demonstrate its industry leadership in specialty glass and fiber optic technologies with the introduction of two products designed to enhance and extend the capabilities of consumers' favorite devices," said Wendell P. Weeks, chairman, chief executive officer, and president. "These new innovations build on the increasingly important and continually evolving role of highly engineered glass technologies in delivering improved product performance and functionality through touch capabilities, protective cover glass, and device connectivity."

Corning experts will be on hand to present hourly demonstrations of the toughness of Gorilla Glass 3 as well as the connectivity and flexibility of Optical Cables by Corning at their CES booth.

Dyllon (funny your name auto corrected to "Dull On") if you would stop and think for a moment you'd realize that with stronger glass devices can be made thinner and lighter. Even you would like to have a phone like that. Until that phone comes along why don't you consider taking some critical thinking courses and spare the rest of from your silly comments.

There are actually a number of devices. But they are not all openly telling people they are using it.
