  Introducing Corning(®) Gorilla(®) Glass 3 and Optical Cables by Corning
CORNING, N.Y. - Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) today announced its plans for
the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas next week. The
Corning booth, #14813 Central Hall, will highlight the company's newest
specialty glass solutions and their benefits for today's consumer electronics
device trends.

Corning plans to introduce two new products at CES 2013: Corning(®) Gorilla(®)
Glass 3, a new glass composition with durability enhancements; and Optical
Cables by Corning, fiber-based, device-to-device connectivity solutions that
significantly extend the data transmission range past the limits of copper-based
cables. Full product details will be included in announcements planned for
Monday, Jan. 7.

"This year at CES, Corning will demonstrate its industry leadership in specialty
glass and fiber optic technologies with the introduction of two products
designed to enhance and extend the capabilities of consumers' favorite devices,"
said Wendell P. Weeks, chairman, chief executive officer, and president. "These
new innovations build on the increasingly important and continually evolving
role of highly engineered glass technologies in delivering improved product
performance and functionality through touch capabilities, protective cover
glass, and device connectivity."

In the Corning booth, experts will be on hand to discuss and present hourly
demonstrations of the toughness of Gorilla Glass 3 as well as the connectivity
and flexibility of Optical Cables by Corning. The booth will also showcase the
benefits of Corning Gorilla Glass in larger format, multi-touch displays for
education, entertainment and other applications.
Additionally, James P. Clappin, president, Corning Glass Technologies will be a
panelist in the "Disruptive Technologies Impacting the Future of Games and
Video" session at 11a.m. PST on Tuesday, Jan. 8, at LVCC, North Hall N255-257.
