    What kind of glass does the Storm 2 use? That phone's screen is very hard to scratch. I never used a screen protector and my Storm 2's screen is perfect.

    Im sure some other company would be willing to buy the patent from them and continue on. I wonder why they went down. If they are building for smartphones there business should be booming right now.

    Is gorilla glass really all it's "cracked" up to be? Not from what I've read.

    Even if it's true it's not a major let down. All those YouTube videos demonstrating no scratches using keys, knives, etc. etc. are BS.

    My sister has an HTC Sensation which uses Gorilla glass. No screen protector and there are definitely scratches on the screen.

    Yeah, I have no idea what the OP is talking about. Corning is a major glass and ceramics manufacturer. They are not just "shutting their doors" - unless it's to go home at night. Even then, most glass manufacturing happens on a 24 hour a day, 7 days a week schedule.

    Some recent Corning news includes: just acquired Mediatech Inc last week; announced two months ago that Gorilla Glass is coming to more surfaces... That's not the sound of a company "shutting their doors".

    What they did say was that demand for Gorilla Glass will be weaker in the Q4 due to weaker than expected non-iPad tablet sales. That's it.
