I remember reading about another phone (thunderbolt?) that was not listed but did in fact have it, I dont remember why but it might have had to do with corning owning the name or something. That might not be the case here but I just wanted to point that out

Charge Has Gorilla Glass
As posted on Phandroid by moshock of his convo with a Samsung agent:
Marcus: Hi, thank you for contacting Samsung Technical Support. How may I help you today?
Sam: Does the Samsung Droid Charge have Gorilla Glass?
Marcus: I understand that you want to know if Droid Charge has Gorilla Glass. Am I correct?
Sam: Yes sir.
Marcus: Thank you for confirming.
Marcus: Yes, it has Super AMOLED plus display and Gorilla glass touch screen.
Sam: How come I can't find the "gorilla glass" information on a single website?!
Marcus: Let me check for that information.
Sam: Thanks. I just can't seem to find it in writing anywhere.
Marcus: You are welcome.
Sam: Any luck finding it?
Marcus: I am sorry, not yet. I am checking the information on Samsung website.
Marcus: Thank you for holding.
Sam: I just downloaded the Verizon Droid Charge manual (pdf version) and did a search for "gorilla glass" and it yielded 0 results. =\
Marcus: Unfortunately, there is no written information on the Gorilla glass on Droid charge, but there is some information on web pages. But we do not have access to provide you non-samsung links.
Sam: So do you know 100% for sure it has Gorilla Glass??
Marcus: Yes, I am sure of it. Please let me check once again regarding the written information.
Marcus: I am sorry, there is no written information on this. But I am sure, that this phone has Gorilla Glass. You can search for the information on the web as well.

I tested the screen at a local VZW store yesterday, I didn't have my keys at the time but my gf gave me one of her earrings and I used the straight somewhat-sharp clasp thing (looks like a pin) on the screen, pressing hard all over. Wiped the phone off and didn't really see any markings at all. That would be the extent of harshness that I would put the phone through, I keep all of my phones in a case mounted in a holster, face in.
I hope someone from Samsung or Gorilla Glass will officially say that the DC has their product on the phone, I'm considering buying one.

I finally broke down and got one for $149 today, couldn't be happier! But yeah, it definitely feels like Gorilla Glass. I'm not gonna go and try to scratch it to see, but it feels and sounds just like Gorilla Glass on other phones, which feels different from anything else. Besides, its a Galaxy S phone, why would it not?

So did I purposely try, again... yes and no, but it was under the supervision of a Verizon sales rep, not by myself.

So, your "girlfriend experience" may not be that diagnostic.

Wow...I can't believe how a few people are "shocked" you would "dare" to try to "damage" the screen...
Hell, why not? It's a test unit isn't it? He's testing to see if it can withstand something they are claiming it should be able to withstand. I see nothing wrong with that. I'd want to know the same answer, and I'd probably do the same thing to find out. If it gets scratched, the store can replace it when they eventually notice it...
