Corning supplies Gorilla glass for Acer's dual-screen Iconia Tab
Press release; Yvonne Yu, DIGITIMES [Friday 7 January 2011]

Corning has announced that Corning Gorilla glass has been designed into Acer's Iconia Tab computer. The Iconia creates a tablet experience combining a 14-inch form factor with a dual-screen layout and intuitive all-point touch functionality.

The Iconia's design incorporates ultra-thin, durable Gorilla 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 fully utilize the devices' multi-touch technology.

Corning Gorilla glass is an environmentally friendly alkali-aluminosilicate thin-sheet glass. Its damage resistance helps protect today's sophisticated electronic devices from the scratches, drops, and bumps of everyday use. Compatible with advanced touch screens, Gorilla glass is tough enough to handle the ongoing physical contact intrinsic to these devices, Corning said.

Gorilla glass is currently used by more than 20 major brands, designed into hundreds of product models, and featured on more than 200 million devices.
