Amazon Kindle in Sunlight Demonstration

The new Amazon Kindle has arrived and along with it, a new and clearer screen technology that provides a 50% better contrast than any other eReader on the market.

Crunch Gear put together a video showing a hands on with the Amazon Kindle to show how it looks in direct sunlight. According to Crunch Gear, the light was very bright and it didn’t effect reading at all on the device.

You should note that the sun was bright as can be when this was shot, and you can clearly read every single word on the E Ink display. Direct sunlight, you’ve met your match.

The embedded video below shows a demonstration of how good the screen looks. Although tablets such as the iPad can do a lot more than the Kindle, one thing they cannot do is be used as easily in direct sunlight.
