I wish he'd explained what he meant.
From the same article, he mentioned that the latency of the touchscreen improve and works well.

"When I took Amazon’s latest Kindle for a spin, I was told that there were too many compromises with touch navigation. In a nutshell, touch had latency because the signal sent by your fingers had to go through two planes—glass and the E-ink. Sony, however, eliminated the need for an overlay screen. Now touch is much more intuitive and works well."

If Sony successfully eliminated the glare problem, they've made very good ereader. 7" with touchscreen and not too small yet still portable. It might be the best compromise for PDF.
