I havent seen any info in this so I'm guessing the answer is no, but does anyone know if the Thunderbolt is going to have Gorilla Glass? I don't like using a screen protector and thats one of the reasons I got a Fascinate.

I thought someone mentioned in a different thread (I can't find it right now, maybe it was on a completely different forum altogether) that the screen will be made of some kind of improved glass that has some additive in it or something that makes it more scratch-resistant...

Can someone else confirm or deny this?

Im not worried about it being strong enough that it wont crack. I have insurance so thats not a big deal. What I'm worried about is if its going to scratch very easily.

Same with both my Eris and DInc I had. I put them in my pockets (with nothing else) everyday and the screen is flawless, not even minor scratching.

we're not sure exactly how they choose what to display on there, but i specifically remember last month when i got my Atrix, i checked that same webpage and it was not showing a single HTC product. now, it's showing a couple HTC phones that was released last year like the Evo 4G, the Incredible, and the myTouch 3G. which is why i think most people have assumed that HTC does not use Gorilla Glass at all.

I've read that there are very restrictive copyright/trademark issues and that company's who contract to use Gorilla Glass (Corning) are not allowed to advertise it as such without paying a fee (i.e. Apple). On the other hand, Corning, obviously retains the rights to offer their "customers" up as a reference.

Even if it ever does, it won't be on this model - were you looking for Thunderbolt II - or Thunderbolt III?
