Dell Streak's Gorilla Glass display: Is it as durable as advertised?

Torture test shows the claims may be true.

Receiving a prototype of a cool new mobile device to go through the features and toys would be enough to keep most of us happy and occupied. The folks at Engadget think a little bit differently though. When they were told that the 5 inch Gorilla Glass display, made by Corning, was said to stand up to darn near anything the average consumer could throw at it, they decided to throw caution to the wind and put it to the test.

While they didn't exactly take a sledgehammer to the Streak or run a knock off of "Will it Blend?", this is a fairly impressive display, especially to the tech geeks like me who have small children and can see something like this happening to our own toys. You can almost hear the Streak chuckling at the tester banging on it with the pen with only a few ink spots left for his effort. Hopefully Corning's Gorilla Glass can catch on with more MIDs and help me take "will my kids destroy it?" out of the equation when shopping for a tablet or smartphone.
