At CES, Corning(yes, the same Corning that makes Pyrex) had a large booth displaying their latest product, Gorilla Glass. Gorilla Glass is a new product that has been released on a number of smartphones and other electronic devices instead of the standard glass or polycarbonate screens. It is extremely hard to break and scratch, which makes it perfect for touchscreens. In their demo at CES, they were repeatedly knocking it with a metal ball.
While at CES we were lucky enough to get a demo of Swiftkey by Joe Braidwood.
Side note: more videos are on the way…I have just started the editing process so stay tuned throughout the week as I try to complete a video each night.
As our second day of CES draws to a close, I thought it might be a good idea to post some pictures that we have yet to discuss in a blog post. I will also leave a link to the flickr account we have set up.

Oh, did we mention we got to play with a RIM Playbook? It will be available in a 4G variant on the Sprint network, however no additional information was available at this time.

Last but not least, here is a link to our flickr account. We have been uploading pictures at the end of the day, so keep tuned. We will try to post as much as we can. but the posts will lag a bit to the processing of the pictures.
Make sure to head on over to www.mobileappsshowdown.com/ and take a look at a new contest for developers of Mobile apps being held on Jan 9, 2010 at the CES in Las Vegas, NV. Encourage any developer you think should be there to enter their app for consideration.
