Gorilla Glass 3 annunciato alla stampa (prima del CES 2013) – video
Il CES 2013 deve ancora aprire i battenti, ma alla Corning anticipato i tempi: è il momento di Gorilla Glass 3 !
Per il momento quello di Corning, la società produttrice del Gorilla Glass, è solo un preannuncio. Nella conferenza stampa di domani, in apertura del CES 2013, sarà presentata una nuova versione del vetro ormai presente in modi quasi ubiquitario sui display degli smartphone di tutto il mondo, marchiata con un evidente sforzo di fantasia, Gorilla Glass 3. Le caratteristiche esatte di questo prodotto non sono ancora disponibili (anche se promette di essere ancora più resistente), bisognerà aspettare qualche ora.
Corning lascia però chiaramente intendere di volere puntare su mercati con schermi più grandi di un semplice smartphone: lavagne interattive, televisori, vetri di casa cruscotti. Insomma, tutto ciò che deve essere resistente e in grado, al tempo stesso, di presentare contenuti interattivi.
Vi invitiamo a godervi alcuni video che presentiamo qui sotto in rapida successione:
- un promozionale di Corning ambientato in un futuro prossimo, con tanti schermi interattivi
- una pubblicità di Gorilla Glass con un gorilla (vero?)
- un test del Gorilla Glass che facemmo nel 2010 in occasione del Mobile World Congress 2010 di Barcellona
A seguire il comunicato stampa di Corning che preannuncia il Gorilla Glass 3.
