Already available on the Droid X and and Dell Streak, Gorilla Glass is Corning's apparently indestructible glass material that will now reportedly reinforce the LCD TV screens and touchscreen tablet devices in the near future. Called “stab-proof” technology, Gorilla Glass certainly sounds like an innovative and exciting feature, but it hasn't yet been implemented by any of the major TV manufacturing companies.
With high-end LCD TV displays incorporating support for high-definition (HD) content and 3D video, the market for LCD TVs is certainly booming! It looks like a great opportunity for Gorilla Glass to capitalize on, with buyers ready to pay a premium to safeguard their expensive displays. Gorilla Glass is expected to make its first appearance across LCD TVs and tablets by CES 2011 release.
