“The full touch screen mobile category is growing rapidly these days and projected capacitive technology is one of the preferred touch technologies for today’s full touch mobile market,” Andy Kim, senior manager of Product Planning Group of Samsung Electronics, said in a prepared release distributed by Corning Inc. “Working with Corning and the unique composition of Gorilla glass allowed us to design a thin, light-weight, stylish mobile phone.”

Corning’s Gorilla glass is designed so that after undergoing a chemical strengthening process, it provides device manufacturers with a highly durable, scratch-resistant cover glass for touch screens and flat portable displays, the release stated.

“Touch screen has rapidly become the standard in high-end mobile phone devices and in today’s mobile phone market, users want technology packed into stylish designs,” James E. Hollis, commercial director of Corning Specialty Materials, said in the same release. “Device makers want a product that can withstand the repetitive motion and use of touch. Corning’s Gorilla glass is ideal for these types of applications where pressure is being applied to the interface. It is a strong and damage-resistant cover glass that can withstand high-volume user interaction.”
