At this year's Computex we learned a little about Intel's new "Core m" that's coming to market later this year but we also learned a little about Corning's new anti-reflective glass coating that's coming to smart devices later this year. You can see Corning's coating in a circular area in the middle of the glass example found in our cover graphic above. Our brief report connects you to a new video discussing the new glass coating.
Corning's new anti-reflective coating is applied to both sides of the glass. In combination with a display panel, which is connected by Zero Air Gap technology directly to the coated glass, reflections are almost completely eliminated. Those seeing the new coating say that the results are extremely impressive. Lenovo's new convertible notebook will be the first device to officially adopt Corning's new coating.
Whether Apple adopts Corning's glass or not later this year is unknown at this time as speculation is running high that Apple will adopt a new sapphire glass cover. To date, Apple has three patent pending inventions on record regarding new anti-reflective technologies (one, two). Apple's most modern of solutions for anti-reflective glass is tightly tied to a new iPhone with a wraparound display.
Whatever Apple does, we hope to see a superior anti-reflective coating solution finally come to Apple's iDevices and MacBook Pros later this year.
