    Does the iPad2 have Gorilla Glass or not
    Stumbled into a heated debate at work yesterday and since I now own 3 Apple products I'm labeled "fanboy" by my co-workers.

    Since I've been raving about my new iPad2 and that my wife now want's one of her own (what wife wants - wife gets) they seemed to think I had the answer.

    I Googled it and it appears as of Jan 2012 there is no empirical answer to this question.

    Just thought I'd throw this out here and see what you folks say.

    Cheers

    PS: If not GG then what?

    Thanks for all the info. There was only one ref to GG so I guess the jury is still out. I wonder why all the secrecy over the type and manufacture of the glass.

    Well why would you think??...it's possibly a competitive advantage.

    If you were a company working in a very competitive environment...and in the business of making money...would you want your competition to know all your secrets???

    It still scatches and cracks. Mine magically cracked by the battery expanding and my dog managed to scratch it as well. I ended up ditching the smart cover for an otterbox and a screen protector.
