Have a Galaxy S? Then You Got the Gorilla!

Is this transparent aluminum?

You read the title right! Corning has announced that they indeed were the providers of the glass that is on all Galaxy S devices! It is good to know that our precious devices are protected by this virtually indestructible glass product!

A quote from the article covering this story:

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.

This is the glass that Engadget WHALED on try to get to break with no success. I don't recommend trying the same test, but if you do, let us know how it goes!
