Screen freezing in direct sunlight

The screen of my Glo freezes over a period of time when reading in bright sunlight. To correct this I need to do a manual reset every time it occurs. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem, and if so, were you able to correct it. I'm currently running version 3.3. Thanks!

Yes it Happened to my Glo as well.

I ventured outside to enjoy a short sunning and after a few minutes of direct sunlight the screen froze, went 'ghastly' white, hardware reset recovered it. The manufacturers are Canadian ?, perhaps that explains the lack of sunlight testing.

Note to users who like to read outdoors on a sunny day, get two hats for outside reading, or a huge sombrero.
