Samsung Makes Screens Easier To Read Outdoors

Samsung today announced a new super-reflective LCD technology for transflective displays. Although the term reflective normally has negative connotations with outdoors viewing, in this case the reflective properties make the display brighter and thus easier to read in bright sunlight. Transflective displays save power over normal TFT LCDs, but often aren't as bright outdoors. The first model to use this new technology is a 128x160 display 3 times brighter than current models. Samsung plans to roll this technology into all its high resolution displays in the future.

What, exactly, is the big deal?

I've never had any problems reading the screens on my mobiles during the day. I just tilt it whatever way to make it readable. Am I alone here?
most phones are hard to read in direct sunlight. Especially with a case on the phone.

This will help that out alot. You won't (theoretically) have to tilt your phone anymore.
try using a razr on a sunny day in california. you'll understand the big deal.
