    I don't care if it's Gorilla Glass, Orangutan Glass or even Rhesus Monkey Glass if it's just as scratch resistant.

    It could be Planet-of-the-Apes Glass and it'd still shatter like a young child's dreams once you let it drop to a concrete or stone floor (the glass, not the young child).

    so its a no?

    Interesting if you look at touchpad surface from a low angle, you can see pre-like small, white, tiny dots grids. Does that play a role in decising what coating/surface touchpad can use?

    Aren't those part of the capacitive digitizer?

    Yes, and interestingly, they are not the same spacing as on my Pre-

    I seem to recall a few of the questions from HP's Launchline Facebook app like the one that asked, "What's Gorilla Glass?" The correct answer was something like, "Hardened glass used in the HP TouchPad to prevent cracks and scratches."

    It seems like the same stuff that is on my Pre2 and that thing doesn't have a single scratch on it. It's months old and I'm not all that nice to it. If I wipe the screen with a rag is looks like brand new.

    IIRC this is because it is a different tech than used by other manufacturers, but not specific to it being capacitive or gorilla glass.
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    I dunno why but these dots always bother me down to the PRE. I'm surprised they decided to go with the same design for the bigger touchpad. Most other touch phones/pads I have used have no visible grid, only PALM products. At an angle, they are VERY hard to miss and rather annoying.

    Plus I don't think it has Gorilla glass, probably a different coating.

    I heard it has gorilla glass. I just put a cheap 5 dollar screen protector on anyways. Can't hurt.

    I thought Pre2 and Veer were gorilla glass... they aren't listed on their either.

    another benefit of a screen protector, you won't see the grid after putting on one.

    Still, I don't see any evidence suggesting Pre2/Pre3/TP has gorilla glass, hp website makes no mention of it on any of the phone/tabs, not that its the most important thing tho.

    So when you're holding your TouchPad at a weird angle specifically so you can see the dots, you can see them? And you hold it at that specific angle because seeing them annoys you?

    Are you quite alright?

    Also, I'm 99% sure I've seen a similar grid on my friend's Galaxy S. Maybe you're not holding other products at that exact angle that you seem to have a love/hate relationship with.

    Funny thing is every article about Veer mentions gorilla glass. I also found an article that said HP said the TP had gorilla glass. Didn't find anything directly from HP yet though.

    I could still the the dots on my Pre screen with screen protector in the sun.

    precentral also mentioned veer's screen is curved....lol

    I don't know, are we all making a big assumptions here? just because its glass?

    I wouldn't intentionally hold it like that. It just that at times they pop out.

    No other phone I've seen has this grid/matrix.

    I can only assume it has something to do with the gestures area/rest of the glass all being one piece.

    I can verify a slight curve...

    i think they did this with Pre because they want to implement multi-touch gestures (pinch zoom, etc), but apple got a lame patent for a certain implementation method, so they went with this route.

    PS. I contacted CORNING for an answer, hopefully solve the question once and for all.
