Default Spinn's display - Blinded by the light!

Hi
I just got an iRiver Spinn, and I'm happy with it, particularly how it lets me keep the music in the same files as I have on my computer.
I have two questions, though (the other question is in another thread)
I used the Spinn outside on a bright day, and it was impossible to read the display. Even shading it with my hand, it was practically impossible.
Anybody else found a solution to this problem?
Thanks!

hmmm ... thanks for the quick - if off-the-cuff - response
is it really impossible to read the spinn display outdoors. if so, then the ipod's display is superior
btw, my next question has now been posted. i was thinking/writing ahead

The SPINN display is indeed difficult to read in sunlight...unfortunately, even compared to the TFT screen on the B20 and opposed to the Clix's display. Try to turn the display brightnes to max, it would help a little bit.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMOLED

Advantages:
AMOLED displays fabricated on flexible plastic substrates have the following advantages:
Very thin and lighter weight
Greatly minimized propensity for breakage
Lower-power, highly rugged with superior image quality, and low cost compared to the current LCD displays
Due to their inherent ruggedness, allow a unique form factor of conformability and rollability during use, transportation and storage.

Disadvantages: The display is very difficult to view in sunlight.

maybe you need to find something antiglare.
