I want to buy a new cell phone. My only requirement is that the display must be easily visible in direct sunlight (like a Kindle).

There is that industrial unit.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / June 22, 2011 4:46 AM PDT noted it but keep in mind these are not in stores but from harder to procure from sites.

Also, you didn't reveal if this needed to be a smart phone. If not, shop for the old school black and white LCD screens like we had back then. I see a few on the front faces of some flip phones.

Thanks Bob - I will investigate the LCD option. The phone does not need to be "smart" (or even clever).
