Corning: no Willow Glass in devices for three years

02/28, 2:53pm

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.

Corning does not reveal hardware partners for its latest Willow Glass product

Corning, which makes Gorilla Glass found in many portable electronics such as smartphones, tablets, and notebooks, has now introduced a new product called Willow Glass. It's promised to be very thin and flexible, allowing future gadgets to be wrapped completely in it, Corning said. Willow Glass will support thinner backplanes and color filters for OLED and LCD screens and enable the production of curved screens as well.
