In our series of posts, you may have read phrases such as “this phone has a 4.3-inch Gorilla Glass display.” We think that’s a fact worth mentioning because so many phones are all screen these days. Having a phone with a screen made from Corning’s Gorilla Glass gives its owners a little more comfort in knowing their devices are more protected against scratches and cracks. At CES 2012, Corning will demonstrate the sequel to Gorilla Glass that’s appropriately named Gorilla Glass 2.

Corning will have a 82-inch touch screen monitor on display along with other Gorilla Glass-covered devices that could be used in cars and home appliances. There’s even going to be a Gorilla Glass video wall. Corning’s idea is to show how Gorilla Glass can expand into new markets and products.

Naturally, we want to see how durable Gorilla Glass 2 really is. If we’re handed a hammer and are told to go nuts on a tablet screen, we’ll be more than happy to oblige.
