Shipments of the next generation of Gorilla Glass are now underway, New York-based Corning announced Monday. This announcement comes more than a month after the launch of Gorilla Glass 2 at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Hit the jump for more.
Manufacturers trying to build slimmer electronic devices are at the mercy of component makers, whose parts they have to build around. Corning is doing its part and unveiled its next generation Gorilla Glass 2 at the Consumer Electronics Show this week. Gorilla Glass 2 is up to 20 percent thinner than before, yet equally tough and resistant to scratches, Corning claims.
