CES 2011: Corning Gorilla glass selected for Sony Bravia LCD TVs
Press release, staff reporter, DIGITIMES, Taipei [Thursday 6 January 2011]

CORNING, N.Y., January 05, 2011 - Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) announced today that Corning Gorilla glass has been designed into select models of Sony Corporation's (NYSE: SNE) latest Bravia line of LCD televisions. The models are being displayed in Sony and Corning booths at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Corning Gorilla glass is an environmentally friendly glass 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-inch 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.

As a thinner- and lighter-weight material than tempered soda-lime glass and polycarbonates, Corning Gorilla glass supports the seamless full-glass fronts of the most sophisticated television designs. Because it is strengthened at the molecular level, its ability to resist damage creates a performance advantage over other cover materials, Corning said.

Corning anticipates that cover glass for LCD televisions could grow significantly in the future and, combined with Gorilla glass sales for information technology and handheld devices, could generate a combined revenue opportunity of over US$1 billion in the next several years.

The Corning and Sony booths at CES are located in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. Corning's booth is 15419 and the Sony booths are 14200 and 14216.
