Corning Incorporated plans to launch two new products on 7th January 2013 at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, USA.

The company will showcase Corning Gorilla Glass 3; a new glass composition with durability enhancements, and Optical Cables; fibre-based, device-to-device connectivity solutions that extend the data transmission range past the limits of copper-based cables.

“This year at CES, Corning will demonstrate its industry leadership in specialty glass and fibre optic technologies with the introduction of two products designed to enhance and extend the capabilities of consumers’ favourite devices,” said Wendell Weeks, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and President.

“These new innovations build on the increasingly important and continually evolving role of highly engineered glass technologies in delivering improved product performance and functionality through touch capabilities, protective cover glass, and device connectivity,” he added.
