    This is great news for mobile phone users that like the extra protection afforded by the awesome Gorilla Glass by Corning. Apparently, they shared a teaser that they will be unveiling their next gen Gorilla Glass 2 at CES this year. The new glass tech supposedly keeps its same level of damage-resistant toughness, but comes in a thinner and lighter package. Additionally, it further facilitates "broader touch technology penetration", which basically means that touch-based gestures will be easier to detect and more refined through the glass.

    Here are just a few of the demonstrations that Corning is supposedly planning on having at the tradeshow this year:
    • An 82-inch advanced multi-touch LCD display prototype featuring Corning Gorilla Glass as a durable, touch-sensitive, and elegant cover glass.
    • Touch-enabled automobile interior and home appliance center simulators demonstrating the enhanced user interface experience that thin, durable glass can enable in new design applications.
    • A centerpiece, Gorilla Glass-covered video wall, flanked by Gorilla Glass fabricated sound speakers, projecting the latest in Corning specialty glass technology news.
    Here's a quote from James Steiner, Senior VP and General Manager of Corning Specialty Materials,

    So if you happen to be at CES and need a hammer, this would be the booth to borrow that from?
