Have a Galaxy S? Then You Got the Gorilla!

You read the title right!  Corning has announced that they indeed were the providers of the glass that is on all Galaxy S devices!  It is good to know that our precious devices are protected by this virtually indestructible glass product!

A quote from the slashgear.com article covering this story:

The Gorilla Glass covers the big 4-inch AMOLED screen of all Galaxy S models. In case you aren’t familiar with Gorilla Glass, it is an alkali-aluminosilicate thin sheet glass that is scratch resistant and durable. The glass is starting to make significant headway into the mobile device market thanks to its durability.

This is the glass that Engadget WHALED on try to get to break with no success.  I don’t recommend trying the same test, but if you do, let us know how it goes!

    I like how the ad I got in my RSS feed for this story was for a scratch-proof screen protector for the Galaxy S :)

      Wailed is the same as cried. To wail is to cry forlornly without hope.

    What a load of crap. I have case on my phone and have never dropped it and was always careful and yet some how I have a one inch scratch on the glass. Never had any scratches on my previous phones

    Its far from indestructible. Its more shatter resistant for sure, but it still scratches. My Dell streak has a scratch on it (that i managed to polish out with cerium oxide paste). I only dropped it 2 feet onto a coin!
