I know the other versions of the Samsung Galaxy S II have prominently featured Gorilla Glass, but I am unsure if the T-Mobile variant (a.k.a, the T989) has Gorilla Glass? It is not advertised or mentioned on the box or the website; only mentioned on the international versions. Can someone from Tmobile or Samsung confirm if it has it or not? Or anyone that can link a source that confirms it? I've googled it and cannot get an official or trusted answer.
Thanks in advance.

Any official links directly from Samsung?
Nothing offical on the Samsung site, but there is on Corning's Gorilla Glass site.
according to Corning, the Galaxy S2 does indeed have Gorilla Glass.
T-Mobile SGS2 is special flavor. Not like the original Samsung SGS2.
is it the same Glass as the vibrant ?
Yes, seems to be the same grade of Gorilla Glass as on the Vibrant. I have both devices and they seem to be the same. No protective screen cover on the GS2 just like on the Vibrant. It doesn't need one. The best screen ever!
I confirmed with a Samsung contact that the T-Mobile version of the Samsung Galaxy S II does NOT have the name brand gorilla glass from corning, but it does have reinforced/fortified glass (their words not mine).
Unsure whether that's a result of a cost-related decision or not, but there are a few demos out there showing that it's pretty tough device when it comes to the glass and resisting impact. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=elKxgsrJFhw
Of course, everything is relative.
Tough to tell the glass apart with the Vibrant. When I wipe the screen down and apply pressure they feel the same. Corning is working on new glass technologies for future phones that are even stronger.
It certainly isn't the same quality as the other SGS2 models.
Samsung should have been more consistant on the quality of the Galaxy S2.
Samsung provided T-Mobile with what they asked for, most likely.

That would be conclusive evidence if there weren't like 7 versions of the Samsung Galaxy S II. What they're most likely referring to is the i9100 International version, not the T-989 T-Mobile version
It was already confirmed by Samsung (see post from early November) that the T-Mobile version of the SGSII does not have gorilla glass.
Yes it does, on Tmobile site says so
