Perhaps Apple solved the screen glare problem in its latest creation?

Pro reviewers of other sites (CNET, ZDNet, Engadget, AllThingsDigital, etc.) mentioned that it tested to be pretty fast for apps and PDF’s, has a beautiful screen, and is a great value for the holiday season for $249.
Nook Color’s screen is better (less reflective) for reading than iPad’s thanks to new LG screen with anti-glare coating, and it is better performing in sunlight than iPad’s. Also, as it’s smaller in size than iPad, the text appears sharper on Nook’s screen.
Barnes & Noble special Nook SDK runs on top of the standard Android one and gives developers access to exclusive extensions and APIs for the Nook and its interface so porting Android apps is not difficult. B&N says it is more like optimising them for Nook than porting them.
