Corning has said that its Willow Glass won’t be available for at least another three years. The company, best known for its ultra-durable Gorilla Glass, had hoped that it would be available this year, but it doesn’t seem to be happening.
Rumors of Apple’s iWatch helped fuel speculation on Corning’s upcoming product. Everyone learned that Apple is testing a smartwatch, but not much has been said outside of a few rumors and reports. Some reports speculated that this flexible Willow Glass would be part of Apple’s rumored watch.
This tells us two things: 1) Either this rumored iWatch won’t happen anytime soon, if ever; or, 2) the iWatch won’t use Willow Glass, and all that speculation was for nothing.
Would either surprise you at this point? Didn’t think so.
