    Anyone know if the Vibrant will have Gorilla Glass (like the Droid/Droid X)?

    Yes it does... there's another thread around here somewhere with some guy testing it.

    Interesting article, Gorilla glass is actually a 48 yrs old invention building up dust, until now.

    1962 glass could be Corning's next bonanza seller - Yahoo! Finance


    so the question is, does vibrant have it? No speculation or youtube videos of an asian man breaking his phone please, some real manufacturing proof, can someone research and find out?

    ALL ANDROID phones have GORILLA GLASS. I was told this by a Best Buy customer after buying my DROID 2 and discussing the DROID X about how thin it was and if he thought its screen would be susceptible to breaking. He replied to my question by informing me that ALL ANDROID phones have GORILLA GLASS on them.
    I know my DROID 2 does and I have tested it. I dropped a pool cue on my screen and a cue ball from about 4 feet on my screen and it seems indestructible :) I LOVE GORILLA GLASS and ANDROID!!! :D

    Two things, I can guarantee you not ALL android phones have gorilla glass, plus it is almost impossible for the screen to survive a cue ball being dropped on it from four feet. I have had to replace porcelain tile from the same thing.

    So I am calling BS on this story till he shows video proof.

    I shot my Vibrant with a pump action 12 gauge shotgun multiple times over. The phone is destroyed but the glass has only one tiny scratch on it now. I wish I could turn the phone on and test it to see if it affected the touch capabilities... oh well...

    Yes a Cue Ball from 4 feet.. Very scared when I done it but I wanted to test my screen.. If you do not believe I will do it again soon and video it. The ball dropped hit the screen bounced maybe a inch off and landed on the screen again and did nothing to the screen.

    And yes ALL HIGH END Android phones have GORILLA GLASS.

    Porcelain vs Gorilla Glass? I am positive Gorilla Glass is A LOT stronger than Porcelain.

    Porcelain Tile is denser the Granite tile and then installed with mortar onto a concrete floor it requires a hammer and chisel to remove... So I will put a Years Salary on the fact that the Tinsel strength of porcelain tile is much higher then Glass in any form.

    Tinsel strength? Not to be a spelling nazi, but a great deal of credibility is lost when you use the wrong word.

    Ok NAZI tensel better? And one letter does not change the fact that the impact from a write ball can and will crack the glass.

    I believe you mean WHITE ball aka the Cue Ball.

    I will take your salary.

    Because I am positive if I dropped a Piece of Gorilla Glass the SAME Thickness and Size as a Porcelain Tile from say 10 Feet that the More Damage would be done to the Tile and Little if ANY done to the Gorilla Glass.

    How thick are your Porcelain Tiles? I would guess anywhere from one half inch to an inch and a half. Gorilla Glass at those dimensions would be STRONG.

    It's tensile strength. A property that doesn't apply here.


    A pic's worth a thousand words:
