A reminder to all: glass shatters, even fancy fortified glass like Corning’s Gorilla Glass. If that glass happens to be attached to the screen of your favorite gadget, then an unfortunate mess ensues.
Take the iPad, a 9.7-inch screen dominates the tablet’s front, which in turn is covered by glass. The iPad 2’s screen was protected by Gorilla Glass, while it has been rumored that the 3rd generation iPad would feature the latest Gorilla Glass technology that we saw this year at CES. So is the new iPad more impervious to drops compared to the iPad 2?
