The Samsung Focus is Gorilla tough

If you had any doubt that the Samsung Focus was well built, it has been our understanding that the Focus uses Gorilla glass for it's screen.  This has now been confirmed by Samsung (via Twitter) that the screen is indeed Gorilla Glass.

What is Gorilla Glass? As the name implies, it's a thin, light-weight, durable glass that is as tough as a gorilla. As described by Corning,

"Gorilla Glass is an environmentally friendly alkali-aluminosilicate thin sheet glass designed specifically to function as a protective cover glass for high-end display devices such as notebook PCs, televisions and mobile phones."

Now this doesn't mean you can throw caution to the wind and drag your Focus across a bed of nails and not expect to see any scratches. It does mean that the Gorilla glass offers a little more scratch-resistance and durability than your average screen and quit possibly eliminates the need for screen protectors.

WARNING DON'T BE FOOLED BY THEIR DESCRIPTION OF GORILLA GLASS.
We tested tablet PC's at work (EMS) and in first week three screens had broken in normal use ( we never exceeded the specs). Ended up switching to diferent laptop.

I don't know what is made of my old BB Storm screen but I can assure you it has 0 scratches after 2 years and its been used like in war battlefield. And probably no Gorilla Glash, but not even a blade can scratch it.

2nd. My storm 2 glass is bulletproof ( ok maybe not ), but mine also has zero scratches and I've had it for a year, without a case. Gorilla Glass FTL.

Garbage! The front glass of one I looked at at the store the other day was COMPLETELY SCRATCHED!

Either this is false or Gorilla Glass is not what it's "cracked" up to be. One waist-height drop onto a dirt road and my screen is both cracked and scratched.
