Google Nexus S ditches Gorilla Glass leaving screen vulnerable to scratches
The Google Nexus S has been the hot topic in the last fewdaysit wastorn apart, unboxed by ninjas, rooted and viewed from every angle, but here is what might surprise you – it does not have the Gorilla Glass display of some similar phones like the Samsung Galaxy S. That leaves the phone's screen vulnerable to scratches of all kinds and us wondering why would Samsung cut the cost on the rugged glass.

Gorilla Glass is basically a thin layer of alkali-aluminosilicate glass that protects your phone from all kinds of damage. The Gingerbread-flavored phone might have gone without the rugged glass in a simple attempt to cut costs, but the more likely reason seems to be that the curved form of the glass presents an additional manufacturing problem. In any case, this is far from a deal-breaker for us, but rather a warning for those of you keeping your keys and cell phone in the same pocket.
