    There's a video floating around of the front panel of the new iPod Touch. The guy compares it to the current generation iPod touch, and then to the iPhone 4.

    The guy commented that the panel is significantly thinner than either of the other panels, and that's including the display, the glass, AND the touch panel.

    This has led me to believe that the gorilla glass is being used in the new iPod Touch.

    What do you think?

    Yes, Gorilla glass is the glass used for the iPhone 4. Apple don't keep it under wraps, I think they have publicly told everyone, I just can't find a source.

    Apparently, its way stronger, more flexible, enviroment-friendly, and its thinner!

    I hope so. Back in the day of the iPod touch 1G, I bounced a pebble on the screen (lightly) just to see if it was as strong as everybody said and it cracked the whole screen.
