They're supposed to have the same glare reduction as the new Kindle HD's, which in turn I think was just effectively the same as what's found on the current Nook tablets. Basically you're going to have to put up with some glare if you want a tablet (there's always the anti-glare film protector option), though both Amazon & B&N's devices have screens which have less glare than the iPad and other Android tablets.
I have a Nook Color. Overall, I've been pretty happy w/ it. But the glare-factor has sucked, as I often read while outside for a break, and as I walk to/from work (same as I did w/ paper books - stopping at crosswalks & such) ... Anyone heard if the HD Nooks have had that addressed to some degree?
The original Nook Tablet addressed it to some degree, since its less glary than the Nook Color, but you'll still probably want a good anti-glare screen protector to reduce the glare if the NC glare is something more than a minor annoyance to you.
To date, there's nothing that beats an eInk device for reading outdoors in the sun.
Has anyone here tried the Kobo tablet? They're supposed to be using screen tech that makes them more readable in sunlight, but I've not seen a comparison against the NT.
What AshyLarry said.
All this 'glare reduction technology' seems ineffective to me.
For me Nook Tablet and Nook Color and Kindle Fire HD and Nexus 7 all seem to have the same amount of glare. If anything Nook Tablet seems best.
I don't really think you can have a LCD screen without the glare issue. Because if you optimize too much you lose general visibility.
