It will retain its magical strength even when scratched (which is rarely the case for glass).  Gorilla Glass 3 will be showcased at CES and should make it into your favorite 2013 gadget. 

Stronger, more scratch resistant glass is always a good thing for the road warrior business person.

Glass is rarely an exiting topic but most tech analysts were extremely rilled up when we saw Corning's announcement of Willow Glass. It is a 100 micron thin flexible glass for LCD and OLED screens. This will allow manufacturers to come up with new and interesting mobile product designs...
It seems that with all the flexibility and thinness, Willow Glass maintains the though Corning Glass qualities. Corning has said this will first be used in mobile phones. Here is hoping the Samsung Galaxy S IV uses this new product in wonderful ways.
