Tablets without glare?

The iPad seems to suffer badly from glare in the sun. Are there any tablets that don't have that problem?

No, in my opinion the iPad is about as good as it gets if you're not getting a device with an eInk display. (like the Kindle etc).
There is a great 10in colour eInk device, but it's mainly a reader/text editor with a basic web browser. No games and such... oh, and it's about 700$$$$$$$

Oh, come to think of it: the Barnes and Nobel Color was, imho, a bit less glaring. But it runs a handicapped version of Android, and the B&N 'market' is only accessible from US soil....

$700 is about £450, not that much more than an entry level iPad, if you're desperate for a non-glare display. Or, you could buy an anti-glare screen protector off eBay for your iPad, that's what my dad's done.

How does that one work outside or in bright conditions?
Anyway, I find reading on the iPad acceptable - there's a dark mode in iBooks and Stanza (also Kindle app afaik)...

Yeah, it works pretty well. Not as good as eInk, but then again it still retains the full functionality of an iPad. For less than 2 quid it was definitely worth it.
