Well, I've read from the Nokia Blog that all nokia phones with glass display are with Gorilla Glass. C7 is not specifically stated with Gorilla Glass, sad.

BUT I found something cooler, this guy scratched his C7 with a pen knife and according to him, the display is still fine. Though I feel improvement could be done on the video =S

Additional video:

T-Mobile USA launched Nokia Astound a.k.a. C7, that Marketing Manager on the the video said in 0:19... "Gorilla glass".

 

Well, unless you are saying Astound is not the same as C7, I've got nothing to say.

 

Anyway, take a look at the upcoming features. I like the landscape keyboard, not so cramp anymore imo, and Swype built-in.

 

GO C7!!

Re: Nokia C7 Gorilla Class?

Not clear if it does or it doesn't have gorilla glass.  What I can say for definite is that mine is scratched after spending only 5 mins in a loose pocket with one key.  The only time I've ever put the phone in the same pocket as a key and it scratched. :-(

Actually, it does have gorilla glass, check out Corning website which makes the gorilla glass.

But imo, gorilla glass is only scratch "resistant", not scratch "proof", certain protection is still needed on the screen.

Re: Nokia C7 Gorilla Class?

For everybody's information, whilst the trademark "Gorilla Glass" is not mentioned in Nokia literature concerning the C7-00, the glass used is exactly the same material.

Re: Nokia C7 Gorilla Class?

Nokia C7 does have Corning Gorilla Glass confirmed by @Nokia as well as @NokiaCare on twitter. So it is official. You can try asking them on twitter you will surely get the same reply.
