If you haven’t heard of Corning or their Gorilla Glass then let me explain. Their product is essential to almost all smartphones and tablets as of late and are on a majority of all Android devices (not the Galaxy Nexus though) and their glass protects that precious screen of yours. We all know Gorilla Glass is tough but things are about to get even tougher with Gorilla Glass 2.

We haven’t heard much about Gorilla Glass 2 yet but there is plenty to improve over the original. While it is extremely strong and scratch resistant you still hear friends and family members alike suggesting smartphone buyers get a screen protector right away — basically as soon as they unbox the new phone. I’ve personally not used screen protectors over the past few months myself.

Today Corning has just announced they’ll be unveiling their new Gorilla Glass 2 at this years CES. We will be there live next week to capture all the goodness and hopefully get some hands-on time. You can expect the new generation of tough glass to be thinner, stronger, and even more scratch proof. Hopefully they have something amazing to show us. We are hearing they’ll have an 82″ multi-touch LED on display covered in the new glass so that should be fun. You can find the full press release at the via below.

Stay tuned for all the news from CES and Corning starting next week — right here at Android Community!

    they can hear and see what your visually thinking
    this is the complete truth

    The reason a lot of Asians have completely expressionless faces, only associate with Asians and don’t associate with non Asians that much, and are very unfriendly in general is to avoid accidentally revealing that they can read minds. If all over a billion Asians where to show facial expressions all the time just as much as non Asians, associate with non Asians much more, and be much more friendly and talkative, then a lot of them might accidentally reveal that they can read minds by accidentally showing a facial expression or dirty look when someone thinks, or visually pictures something in their mind they don’t like, find astonishing, or funny etc because those people might see that and and really wonder what that was that just happened there and see the connection, if they all associated with non Asians a lot more then there would be a lot more people around for them to accidentally show facial expressions when those people think things they don’t like etc, so they only associate with Asians so there won’t be anyone around for them to see that and have any accidents happen in the first place.

    Think about it, it’s not normal how a lot of them act, it’s not normal human behavior! and the entire way they act is all to hid their mind reading abilities, it makes perfect sense to do all of that to hide that they can read minds, because all of that is the perfect way to do it!
    Every single Asian alive is hiding their mind reading abilities, they will always deny that they can read minds, they will lie about having mind reading abilities forever!!!
    Because they value hiding their mind reading abilities more then their own lives! 
    That’s why nobody knows about it!

    Try thinking, best yet visually picturing in your mind something absolutely crazy as you possibly can when you are around Asians, and try looking for Asians who give people particular looks, especially dirty looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, that is them giving people looks when they hear and visually see someone thinking something they don’t like, find astonishing, or funny etc.
    It still happens spite a large percentage of Asians having completely expressionless faces all the time, it would just happen a lot more if none of them had completely expressionless faces all the time, it’s still not uncommon!

    I know this sounds crazy, impossible and completely unbelievable, BUT IT ISN’T CRAZY WHEN ITS TRUE

    The reason you think this truly is crazy, impossible, and unbelievable is because our society as propagandized us into believing that nothing extra ordinary is real, and that it is impossible that people can read minds, and that it is crazy to think that it’s true that people can read minds, all just to cover up that Asians can read minds! who says that can’t exist? the people who have mind reading abilities who are trying to cover it up!

    You have to spread the message!!!!!
    The world has to know about this!!!!!
