bring it on! if this is put on an iPhone 4 and does not break when drops, I might consider glass designs.

Yup it's another company claim that there glass is strongest in the market today just like gorilla glass company claim earlier that there gorilla glass 2 is stronger than gorilla 1 glass , I think they have to put there product out in the market to test it in everyday use and to see if it live up to what they claim to be the strongest out there in the market

thats not what gorilla is claiming. well i guess it depends on how you look at it. they claim it is just as strong as GG1 but thinner.

Cool they've got an anti-glare variant.
Now when are we going to see Corning/Asahi/Schott put their glass to proper real world drop tests?

Another case of copycat like how Android/Samsung did to Apple.

They should just use a layer of diamond as glass... Expensive but the idea of that reminds me of that I believe Prada blackberry that was selling for 8k.
