Too hard on your mobile device screens? Corning (NYSE:GLW) has just announced the third generation of their popular Gorilla Glass technology, which could be coming to an Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone or iPad near you.
The new Gorilla Glass 3, to be unveiled at the impending Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas January 8-11, 2013, is supposed to be three times stronger and more scratch-resistant than its predecessors — and 40 percent fewer scratches that do occur will actually be visible. The improved technology is called “native damage resistance,” which basically means that it takes three times as much force to scratch or shatter your screen.
