The folks from Gorilla Glass are on hand for CES 2012 and they're making it well known they've been doing some innovation on their offerings. With their glass on more than 600 products they know what people and more importantly manufacturers are looking for and right now -- thin is still all the rage, and that's why they've now made Gorilla Glass 2 a whole 20% thinner.
It may not sound like a big deal but a lot of device weight comes from adding glass components to devices and when you shed off 20% you're removing not only thickness but weight as well, giving manufacturers the ability to create lighter, thinner products. It'll still be a while before devices turn up making use of Gorilla Glass but it's something to keep in mind the next time you hear a company stake claim to the thinnest, lightest of any product. It could be because of Gorilla Glass 2 and you may never know it!
