It has been confirmed that the Samsung GALAXY Tab will ship fitted with Gorilla Glass, a hardened aluminosilicate glass which will protect the device from breaking or picking up scratches during use. 
Corning’s Gorilla Glass is currently designed into more than 225 mobile devices, and is an appealing solution for the emerging smart media device environment due to its scratch and damage resistance. 
The design of the GALAXY Tab is enabled in part by using Corning Gorilla Glass as a cover glass. The design features an environmentally friendly alkali-aluminosilicate thin-sheet glass.
The Samsung GALAXY Tab was announced in September at the Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin (IFA), consumer electronics show held in Berlin, Germany.
It features a 7” portable screen, video calling, full-web browsing functions, and is powered by Android 2.2.
"The GALAXY Tab maximizes the joy of e-reading, web browsing, watching videos and movies, and listening to music while on the move. It has innovative functions and advanced characteristics in display, and Corning's Gorilla glass has enabled GALAXY Tab to combine best-in-class technologies in mobility and toughness" says B.J. Kang, senior manager of Product Planning of Samsung Electronics said.
"We are pleased that consumers recognize the benefits of Corning's Gorilla glass in their IT products," said Haeng Hee Lee, president of Corning Korea Company Ltd. "Consumers are enjoying IT display products with more durability through the application of Corning's Gorilla glass. We strive to deliver new technologies that help our customers gain a competitive edge in the global market place."
