I did not attempt to increase the brightness (not knowing how) but then neither did any of my very geeky, very Apple fan, friends who I would assume would know how. Perhaps there is a way to make it at least useable?

Edit: I just asked my geekiest of all friends and he said:

"it is hard to use in full sun without an anti-glare screen protector and i don't care for the anti-glare screen protectors because they mute the colors a little bit"
Well, my wife and I used Nokia tablets (770&800) for ebooks, but we spend a _lot_ of time in our FL pool and found them useless outdoors. I took the plunge first with the Sony 505, then bought her one. Honestly, had the Nokias been usable in full sunlight we wouldn't own 505s. <Shrug>

Thanks again for the report!
