screen usability in the outside

> can anyone of you owners make a point on how the screen behave outside?

I am comparing it with a dell axim which has a transreflective screen.
It's not the best screen out there, but it does work in sunlight.

Anyway, the two devices look fine in the shade outdoors, probably with
the edge going to the higher resolution neo. In direct sun the neo
does lose a lot more visibility and although usable, it might require
some squinting or some twisting around to get out of the sunlight in
order to do much. About the only way you'll have a readable neo screen
in direct sun is if it's truly showing a large, bold text in
high-contrast white/black. The axim is still just as usable in direct
sunlight as it is in the shade.
