Skyrocket - Gorilla Glass?

Does the Skyrocket have Gorilla glass just most of the Samsung line? I read a few reviews where they said it did NOT have Gorilla Glass and want to make sure before I purchase one.

Thanks...

Re: Skyrocket - Gorilla Glass?

Gorilla Glass is a trademarked name for the super hard glass produced by Corning. Others make glass that is just as good, but they can't call it Gorilla Glass. Just because a device doesn't have a  "Gorilla Glass" layer this doesn't mean that it isn't as good as one with it.

I dropped my Skyrocket today from a height of about 1.5 feet, and it cracked...fatally. I'm going to go with "no" on the issue of Gorilla Glass. I really enjoyed my Skyrocket, but I have to say that my new One X is a nice consolation prize...

Gorrila glass is not shatter proof or shatter resistant. (Ask any iPhone 4 / 4S owner)

It is harder to scratch and more flexible than regular glass, but will still shatter on impact just as easy as regular glass will..

I've never had an issue with my skyrocket, no screen protector or anything on it and it has no scratches, i've dropped it several times and it's never cracked (though the battery cover flies off easy!)
