Corning Glass Selected for LCD TVs, Tablet Computer

January 13, 2011

Corning Inc. recently announced that its Gorilla® Glass has been designed into select models of Sony Corp.’s new BRAVIA® line of LCD televisions and Acer’s ICONIA tablet computer. The glass is an environmentally friendly product designed specifically to function as a cover glass for high-end display devices such as notebook PCs, televisions, and mobile phones.

The 0.7 mm Corning Gorilla Glass will be designed into Sony’s BRAVIA line of 40-in. and larger televisions. Using this very thin, yet durable, cover glass will help further evolve BRAVIA’s monolithic design, enabling a thinner and more elegant style of television. The ICONIA’s design incorporates the ultra-thin glass as a cover glass for its dual multi-touch displays, and includes a full range of intuitive and easy-to-use features designed to optimize the devices’ multi-touch technology.

“We’re excited to apply Corning’s unparalleled glass expertise to create new possibilities in technology and design,” said James P. Clappin, president of Corning Glass Technologies. “Makers of personal computers and handheld devices have already recognized the benefits of Corning Gorilla Glass and designed it into more than 280 product models. And now, Gorilla Glass’s unique combination of beauty and durability is enabling a fundamental breakthrough in TV design.”
