We talked about the BMW i8 hybrid sports car a couple of days ago, mentioning that it had toughened glass that's a bit stronger than traditional glass we see on cars today.

Touch screens are quite a marvel, but they still come with a few downsides. The glass used can be highly reflective, making it hard to see the display in open daylight, and since we touch our phones constantly, they're susceptible to getting all sorts of germs on them.

iPhone 5S Sapphire Crystal Displays out: Apple and the Vertu factor

Vertu COO Perry Oosting spoke this week on the company's past with Apple, noting how dealings with Sapphire Crystal Displays fell through. This British luxury phone company, Vertu, has itself created smartphones with just such displays working in a lovely manner - but for mass production, it seems, it just wasn't meant to be. According to this fellow Oosting, Apple's choice of Gorilla Glass 3 for future iPhones was a far more feasible choice.

ASUS Zenbook Infinity wraps super-skinny ultrabook in Gorilla Glass 3

Once upon a time, glass was a fragile thing; now, thanks to toughening tech, ASUS can splash a slab of the stuff across the top of its new Zenbook Infinity notebook. Topped by a sheet of Gorilla Glass 3, the same toughened material as we're used to seeing fronting smartphones and tablets, the Zenbook Infinity uses that extra rigidity and strength to drop a dress size, metaphorically speaking, and trim things down to just 15.5mm at its thickest.

Caterpillar B15 rugged smartphone hands-on: surprisingly well balanced

If you've ever used a "rugged" smartphone or tablet before, you'll be surprised to hear that the newest of these rare unicorns is not slow and stunted like those of the past have been - instead the CAT B15 is a rather well balanced device. We've had a peek at the B15 from CAT (or Caterpillar, however you like), and found it to be both obviously able to withstand a beating and appearing to run as quick in its Android implementation as we'd expect a 2013 device to be.

Nexus 4 T-Mobile Review

The difference between the Google Play Nexus 4 and the T-Mobile Nexus 4 is neither in the hardware nor in the software, but in the cost and agreement you'll be making with T-Mobile - but that doesn't mean we can't give some more time to Google's own smartphone hero for Android 4.2 Jelly Bean - for science! First be sure to take a peek at our original full Nexus 4 review as done by our own Vincent Nguyen, then have another dive in with the slight differences between it and the T-Mobile edition - must be something for the massive difference in price, right?
