The Samsung Galaxy S smartphone is one of the more interesting smartphones that has landed of late. The device is being offered on three of the major carriers under various names. For instance on AT&T it is the Samsung Captivate.
If you have wondered how durable that nice big screen on the Galaxy S is, Corning has announced something you will like to hear. Corning has announced that it is providing its rugged Gorilla Glass for the Galaxy S smartphone. The same glass is being used on the iPhone 4 as well and while it’s not shatterproof, it is much stronger glass than your average phone gets.
The Gorilla Glass covers the big 4-inch AMOLED screen of all Galaxy S models. In case you aren’t familiar with Gorilla Glass, it is an alkali-aluminosilicate thin sheet glass that is scratch resistant and durable. The glass is starting to make significant headway into the mobile device market thanks to its durability.
