Sony's New Bravia LCD TVs to be Protected by Gorilla Glass

Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) announced today that models of Sony Corporation's (NYSE: SNE) latest line of BRAVIA LCD HDTVs with Corning Gorilla Glass are now available in select stores nationwide.

Already available for purchase in Sony Stores and online, the sets will continue to arrive on shelves at Best Buy (NYSE: BBY) and other retail outlets across the United States in the coming weeks.

The very thin 0.7 mm Corning Gorilla Glass is designed into several models of Sony's 46-inch and larger BRAVIA HDTVs. The innovative televisions boast a sleek monolithic design enhanced by an OptiContrast panel that provides best-in-class picture quality.

"We selected Corning Gorilla Glass for its toughness," said Brian Siegel, vice president of television business, Sony Electronics." The thin elegance of Corning Gorilla Glass matches the refined styling of our new BRAVIA models, helping us deliver TVs with sleek lines. These high-performance TVs are designed to offer
the consumer a stunning accent piece to a living room when off, and spectacular performance when on."

The environmentally friendly Corning Gorilla Glass is strengthened at the molecular level in order to provide superior damage resistance.

"It's an outstanding cover glass - lightweight, yet providing exceptional durability to help protect against everyday wear," said John P. Bayne, division vice president, OLED and TV Cover Glass. "Corning Gorilla Glass enables the sleek designs consumers are currently demanding in their electronics, whether it be handhelds, slates, laptops, or televisions."
