CORNING, N.Y., Jan. 9, 2012 — Corning Inc. has introduced Gorilla Glass 2, the next generation of its damage-resistant cover glass for consumer electronic devices.

Gorilla Glass 2 enables up to a 20 percent reduction in glass thickness, while maintaining toughness and scratch resistance. The thinner glass enables slimmer and sleeker devices, brighter images and greater touch sensitivity. These benefits provide electronics manufacturers with design flexibility as they address consumer demand for increasingly high-performing, touch-sensitive and durable mobile devices.

The glass has been adopted by the high-growth mobile handset and computing device market, providing a replacement for plastic and legacy soda-lime glass as a protective cover.

This glass, along with Windows operating system innovations from Microsoft, will help deliver beauty, performance and toughness for new Windows PCs.

First introduced in 2007, Corning Gorilla Glass today is used by more than 30 major brands andis designed into more than 575 product models, spanning more than 500 million units worldwide.
