I did not know this

Nice, so I do not need to put screen protector! It's ugly and I hate screen protector

Oh well, I still need to wait it comes to Europe

I work for corning, and when it comes to what products do and dont have gorilla, they keep it very hush hush.. Pretty much sounds like its a need to know type thing. They only put it on the website if they get the ok from the manufacture, which you can do a search on motorolas website for gorilla glass, and motorola will come out saying "x" phone has it, but yet corning hasnt updated the gorilla glass website. grrrr

Question
Andy,

But, is it true that Motorola Xoom uses gorilla glass from Corning?

I still could not believe it because it is not in the official Xoom spec.

I honestly don't know. Personally I would they it would, given its in some of motorolas other products, and that they wanted the Xoom to be a higher end quality product. But I have not heard it confirmed by either company

I have a Droid (original) and it had Gorilla Glass, I love it. I have never used a screen protector and after 1.5 years of heavy use I have basically no major scratches.

I really hope the Xoom has Gorilla Glass too...

Ill second the lack of scratches on my droid, great stuff. I laugh at people who put screen protectors on it. Those are so soft they get scratches easily and then make people think that ther screen got saved when in reality it would have been fine. Just don't put it in your diamond filled pocket and you'll be fine.
