    Corning to Showcase Latest Glass Technologies at CES 2013

    With the Consumer Electronics Show just around the corner, Corning has announced it will formally unveil Gorilla Glass 3 at the expo next week. This year the company is promising “a new glass composition with durability enhancements” that will make your laptops, smartphones and tablets even tougher to crack. The full presser is below:

    Introducing Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 and Optical Cables by Corning
    CORNING, N.Y. – Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) today announced its plans for the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas next week. 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.”

    In the Corning booth, experts will be on hand to discuss and present hourly demonstrations of the toughness of Gorilla Glass 3 as well as the connectivity and flexibility of Optical Cables by Corning. The booth will also showcase the benefits of Corning Gorilla Glass in larger format, multi-touch displays for education, entertainment and other applications.

    The problem with Gorilla Glass 2 is that they made it a lot thinner so it would be lighter. This makes it more susceptible to breakage.
