Dispels speculation about use in 'iWatch'

Corning's flexible Willow Glass won't appear in products until 2016 at the earliest, the company tells Bloomberg. Corning Glass Technologies president James Clappin explains that despite the company's own hopes that Willow would reach the public in 2013, potential buyers haven't yet developed products that can actually exploit the glass. He does add, however, that the company is training "very big name" clients on how to handle Willow, which can be produced in rolls like newsprint.
