Corning has been offering Gorilla Glass for years but the stuff has only become common in the mobile market over the last few years. We typically see Gorilla Glass used for smartphone screens like the iPhone 4.
Corning has announced that starting next year Gorilla Glass will find a new market. The glass will be used to protect HDTVs from scratches and breakage. This is great news for Wii players who won’t have to worry as much about killing the TV.
The glass reportedly won’t add too much to the cost of the sets. Corning claims Gorilla Glass is about two to three times stronger than normal glass.
