Tablets with Gorilla Glass?

Does anyone know which of the currently available tablets (all brands) have Gorilla Glass screens? That kind of durability is very appealing to me. I know the old Samsung Galaxy Tabs use Gorilla Glass.

the nook color uses it but it's not listed, but it's an LG panal I guess that was confirmed that it uses Gorilla Glass on one of the Android sites.

(emph mine) No it doesn't. The nook color does not have Gorilla Glass.

I don't know... maybe the scratches on my screen.

My Samsung Galaxy has Gorilla glass and the presence is real obvious. GG is rigid to the touch and near impossible to scratch. My phone has taken much more abuse than my nook and looks as good as the day I bought it not even a scratch.

The nook on the other had has numerous scratches.

But let's not go back and forth on this topic because we have already done so in the past.


Instead lets solve this by a scientific approach. I'd like you to do a scrach test on your color nook just like the youtube video did below. If your nook color has no scratches you'd prove me wrong.

Again LG uses gorilla glass on it's mobile products and they are the one's who produces the screen.

Gorilla glass is not 100% scratch resistant. My wife has a couple of scratches on her Droid X and that uses Gorilla glass as well.

Perhaps not 100%, but pretty close to it. My iPhone has lived in my pocket alongside coins, keys, and various other hard and scratchy objects for a year, and the screen is as flawless as the day I bought it.

Not going to argue Boswd ...SHOW ME THE VIDEO! ... I want to see those long beautiful gashes on your nook. And if I'm wrong I'll issue you the most sincerest apology.

GG is an added feature, just because a company makes a screen with GG doesn't mean they can't make one without. Samsung and SONY are also screen retailers and they also make products with and w/o GG.

I wouldn't do that with my Droid X and I know for 100% sure that uses Gorilla Glass.
Would you take a screw to your Samsung Galaxy S Tab?

I'll dig around, it's been awhile since I saw the article but there was some form of confirmation that it did use Gorilla Glass. But a video, no way jose

That's good because I honestly wouldn't want to see you destroy your nook.

I don't have a tab, i have a galaxy phone. I've not taken screw, but I have taken the edge of my keys to demonstrate to someone how strong GG was. Apparently I caught them by surprise, they looked at me eyes wide open and said I was crazy.
