Simple answer: maybe.
If Apple will make glasses for the device, you will probably have a setting for viewing them with various types of glasses or no glasses. Otherwise it can't be exactly the same. The site that I linked to before has 12 types of lenses, and beside polarizing light, they also filter it. But via software, you could modify the output of the screen so that the experience would be the similar.

One would think so. Jobs isn't going to create a tablet where you NEED to wear special glasses.

Apparently they were initially used by people going fishing, because they are excellent in eliminating the reflection of the sun on the water surface. Now they are used for many outdoor activities. So all of these people who are willing to pay allot of money for their eyewear might be interested in paying a bit more for their gadgets if it means that they are able to see who is calling them during their golf match without having to lift their glasses and squint at a barely visible screen.
That's actually exactly what I was saying. =) My bad if I worded it clumsily. edit: I wear polarized sunglasses. Gotta take them off to read the lcd screen on my cell phone.

Haha I was looking at Ray-Bans and now I know that their more expensive polarized sunglasses would prevent me from looking at my iPhone screen? Thanks guys.

If the screens are not polarized, what is that supposed to do? Make it easier for people with polarized sunglasses to look at it? Same or worse problem with reading in the sun?

Hmmm, no. I wear a cap or a hat. I don't even wear sunglasses while biking in summer (not even when the weather actually emulates a summer day).
