Honestly, i do not get android manufacturers. I'm giving up trying to understand them. How can you develop this awesome phone, and then BUM! Dealbreaker! Come on!

Gorilla glass is just a name brand. There are many others that are just as good, if not better. No where does it say that the glass will not be protected, just that it won't be by Gorilla glass. This shouldn't be a dealbreaker to any since the glass that Samsung/Google will use will be awesome. Don't worry, I'm sure when the phone comes out, lots of people will prove that quality of the glass used.
