I am sure i read this somewhere on the Amazon website but I could be wrong.
Hope this is of help
I have a Kindle and an iPad with the Kindle app. I can alter the backlight on the screen of the iPad so it's not so bright. This means I can read on my iPad in bright sunlight.
The light slider is in the top right corner of the book page after I have selected the Aa option.
I recently got a Google Nexus7 tablet.
The kindle app on there gives a very nice sharp display, and I use it to carry on reading when I haven't got my kindle handy. The size is just about manageable too.
But the kindle wins hands down on battery life and readability in the sunshine, and I find the slightly smaller size easier to hold.
The new display (ipad3) is impressive, but it wouldn't be my first choice for a bookreader because of it's size and weight (and price!)
Total agree Chris!
My Kindle would always be my first choice for a book reader, followed by my Touch but my iPad isn't too bad for reading on if I can't be bothered to go and get my Kindle from my bedroom!
