Corning® Gorilla® Glass Named Display of the Year by Engadget

Gorilla Glass.

Corning® Gorilla® Glass  earned another tech industry honor last week when Engadget editors named it their top display choice for 2010. The Editor’s Choice awards announcement coincided with Friday’s Engadget Reader Meet Up, where loyal tech followers got their chance to test out the durability of Gorilla Glass.

The Reader Meet Up attracted more than 1,200 attendees, many of whom waited outside for hours to make sure they could get into the door to see the latest in consumer electronics. Corning appeared there alongside many of its customers, including Samsung and HTC. The 3 ½-hour event featured more than 100 demonstrations.

“The Corning table was packed throughout the entire event, with lots of people excited about the chance to test their skills against Gorilla,” said Maryam Khanbaghi, sales engineer and technical liasion for Gorilla Glass.

Dr. Donnell Walton, worldwide applications engineering manager, Gorilla Glass, tweeted live during the event via @Corning. He said he was impressed by the number of young, "early adopters" that came to the event. They eagerly snapped up buttons featuring pictures of Victor, the "spokesgorilla" from Corning's consumer marketing campaign.

“They wanted to discuss technical questions on manufacturing, chemistry, adjacent markets, and what was coming next,” Walton said.  “Many of them said that when they made their next tech purchase -- which would be soon for this group -- they'd make sure they're getting Gorilla Glass.”
