The Tough Tablet that Could Survive Your Family

Technology has become a part of our everyday life. Although we limit the amount of time our kids spend in front of a screen, we still have found some great educational benefits to using tablets.


The only bad thing about devices is that they aren’t as tough as our kids (or us, for that matter). That is the great thing about Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4…it is tougher than other competitive glasses and I don’t have to worry as much about our children’s not-so-delicate treatment.



We were given an Acer Iconia Tab 10 A3-A20FHD to try out and it has been a huge hit with the whole family. Here are just a few of the ways we have utilized it:

  • Watching shows on Netflix
  • Playing educational games for the kids
  • Entertainment while traveling
  • Other tasks such as Facebook and Pinterest (only me, obviously)

I don’t know about your house, but the average life span of cheap plastic toys in our house is about 16 hours or less. Obviously, we have issues with gentleness around here. The Iconia Tab 10 is outfitted with Gorilla Glass 4, Corning’s toughest cover glass yet. It dramatically improves protection against drops, making it optimal for families (especially our family)!



The scientists at Corning Incorporated went to great lengths to develop the cutting edge technology that embodies Gorilla Glass 4. A unique process of fusion and ion-exchange makes Gorilla Glass 4 up to twice as tough as the competition. Gorilla Glass 4 is especially impressive when dropped on asphalt or concrete, which is where 70% of screen breakages occur. Although we have yet to put this to the test, I’m sure it won’t be long before our Iconia Tab 10 (outfitted with Gorilla Glass 4) gets a real-world drop-test with our crazy family.


As a mom of three with a busy summer schedule, I appreciate the peace of mind that comes with knowing that our tablet is durable and will stand up to the abuse that my kids can dish out. :) Whether it is in the car, at home, or on vacation, I can breathe easier knowing that Gorilla Glass 4 will help protect our tablet.
