    For some reason, I wouldn't be surprised to see it used.

    Guys, I'm not saying this has dragontrail. Haha it would be cool, but I dout it does. Its probably sporting sammys own recipe. I mentioned dragontrail because its another brand heading against gorilla. Doesn't exactly have a lot of marketshare.

    That dragontrail glass seems really cool, and if it bends that much it shouldn't have a problem with the slight curve of the nexus.

    who knows though, what i want to know is a release date for the darn thing!!!

    I find it hard to believe that Samsung (Or Google, if it was up to them) would ditch Gorilla Glass on their premier new phone that is going to be sold at $800 (!!!) off contract already because of cost. This is already one of the most expensive phones ever made. How could it affect the price much to add Gorilla Glass?

    I know Gorilla Glass isnt indestructible. I have scratches on my phones, not alot tho. Its just that compared to phones from yester year...Gorilla Glass, like someone already mentioned, is the reason why I dont use screen protectors anymore. For me I would definitely have to see some scratch tests of the Prime if I was gonna get it.

    I was just reading another forum and people with the older Nexus phones without Gorilla Glass were chiming in about how those displays are tough a heck. One guy said he has dropped his phone on rocks, down stairs, had it in pocket with keys and has no scratches. I'm not worried about it.
