    The COPYCATS don't know what their going to do, cause they havn't seen it yet. But Sapphire does cost more to use and will require some real R&D, so Samsung and LG will have to swallow if they want to use it.

    I was an owner of a cell tower company ,we did construction of cell sites for at&t,sprint,nextel.


    i think the next big thing is solar power in the sapphire glass,i read an article in yahoo finance they were working on it.


    your cell phone should be charging when your outside in the sun.


    gtat needs to put solar panels etc,in the glass,and cut the cord,tesla also should put gtat glass over paint job and have soler in it,to help power the car.

    GtAT should put soler in the sapphire glass and cut the cord.your cell phone should charge when you are out side no cord,


    tesla should be working on putting soler in the paint job and cover it with sapphire glass.


    the car should run in the daytime on solar and batteries at night that would solve the plug problem,also on board generators making electric on each wheel,wind at 60 mile an hour should be able to generate some kind of electric power ?
