Looking for comparison of IPad relection/glare vs Sony Readers with Touch Screen

Looking for opinions of reflection/glare of Ipad vs Touch screen version of the Sony readers. Does anyone own both of these devices and care to comment?

I own an IPod Touch and even on the small device, it's uncomfortable to read at certain angles because of the reflection. I was wondering if it's as bad on a bigger screen such as an Ipad. If the Ipad suffers from the same reflection issue, I was wondering how is it compared to that of the touch screen devices from Sony.

I don't own one, but there have been reports that the glare is more distracting, because the screen is bigger than on the Touch or iPhone.

You can buy an anti-glare screen protector, but they degrade the image.

Thanks for the replies. I guess I shall wait a bit before deciding on getting the Sony or the IPad.
