    7105 and direct sun

    Advertisement



    The Hawaiian sun proved to be a tough competitor for my 7105's screen. Iy was difficult to read in direct sunlight. I managed, but thought if this is an improvement over the 7100 then I'm really glad I got the 7105 and that 3 don't do much on my BB in direct sunlight.

    My 7100g isn't the greastest in direct sunlight. I usually just shield it to give some shade, making it easier to read. I do know that the 7290 is good in direct sunlight. I am thinking of giving the 7290 a try just because it's going to start getting sunny again out here and if I can't use my BB at the beach I'll be

    Yup, my 7100t isnt to fabulous in sunlight either. Admittingly it's normaly on "15" for brightness level; which is just about right for using within a classroom or my work (which also happens to be classrooms), but horrible for outside use. I like that the 8700 has the automatic brightness thing, that seems very handy. For me I just shield it if I'm typing outside like "dasupaman23" does.
