Corning announces Gorilla Glass 3
Introducing Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 and Optical Cables by Corning
CORNING, N.Y. - Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) today announced its plans for the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas next week. The Corning booth, #14813 Central Hall, will highlight the company's newest specialty glass solutions and their benefits for today's consumer electronics device trends.
Corning plans to introduce two new products at CES 2013: Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3, a new glass composition with durability enhancements; and Optical Cables by Corning, fiber-based, device-to-device connectivity solutions that significantly extend the data transmission range past the limits of copper-based cables. Full product details will be included in announcements planned for Monday, Jan. 7.
"This year at CES, Corning will demonstrate its industry leadership in specialty glass and fiber optic technologies with the introduction of two products designed to enhance and extend the capabilities of consumers' favorite devices," said Wendell P. Weeks, chairman, chief executive officer, and president. "These new innovations build on the increasingly important and continually evolving role of highly engineered glass technologies in delivering improved product performance and functionality through touch capabilities, protective cover glass, and device connectivity."
In the Corning booth, experts will be on hand to discuss and present hourly demonstrations of the toughness of Gorilla Glass 3 as well as the connectivity and flexibility of Optical Cables by Corning. The booth will also showcase the benefits of Corning Gorilla Glass in larger format, multi-touch displays for education, entertainment and other applications.

GG2 was still very soft but with added flexural strength. I also found it very soft and easily scratched.
Maybe GG3 will be 3rd time lucky?

my GG2 device seemed to be a lot easier to scratch than my GG1 too. ):

I wish they would also work on making the glass less reflective and more resistant to fingerprints.

I think that also has to do with some things specific manufactures do or different types of LCD and Amoled screens. The Rezound was so reflective is was like looking in a mirror. My RAZR amd Maxx HD werent as reflective. My Droid X1 wasnt as reflective, Droid 1 too.
I think HTC tried something different. It didnt work IMO.

I have had zero problems with rev. 1 or 2 honestly. I've sat on my phone several times, most times I've just left in pocket until I get up. I've dropped it half a dozen times, though it has shell around corners. I carry half the time in pocket with keys and change. No scratches or nicks anywhere. Shiny as day 1 and without any screen protection.

I'm happy to see improvements to an already unflawed product.
Flexible display 2014 sounds good to me.

Probably we only have something consistent in october or november. It seems to be a Motorola Nexus.
If it isn't a Nexus, i think it will be released between June and August.
