Touch-Screen Notebooks Protects By New Gorilla Glass

Gorilla Glass NBT, a specially designed solution for touch-enabled notebooks that aims to protect these higher-end devices from the dangers of everyday use.

Touch-Screen Notebooks Protects By New Gorilla Glass   

Standard Gorilla Glass, the type designed back in 2007 especially for the iPhone  that can handle its fair share of roughing up, but all it takes is a uniquely applied push of pressure for the screen to teeter on the edge of a wicked spider web crack. With touchscreen notebooks, the threat is more serious considering the huge cost of screen replacement.

That's why the NBT variety of the glass is not meant to protect these devices from drops but rather from scratches due to excessive use and from any weakness that may result if a scratch does end up on the screen.

 According to Corning, consumer complaint rates are more than twice as high for scratches on touch-screen notebooks than for scratches involving other mobile devices.

Gorilla Glass NBT will be more expensive, but Corning insists that the cost increase will be almost negligible compared with the added strength. "In fact, for just 1 to 2 percent of a device's retail price, Gorilla Glass NBT provides 8 to 10 times more damage resistance than soda-lime alternatives," the company explains in a press release.

The product is available now, and Dell has already signed up to integrate the glass into gadgets for its fall device lineup.
