BlackBerry 10 Screen?
What type of screens will BB10 have?
Talking about the L-Series, I think they're going with an IPS, so this means LCD. But what about N-Series and future ones?

I have read that it will be OLED
Exclusive: BlackBerry 10 OLED Screen Details – Unified Surface, Burn-in, Power Consumption - N4BB
Which make sense since reading the development documentation that why have out already, it talks about power comsumption by using darker colors to minimize the power use.

For OLED if the pixel is black it does not produce any light, with LCD when its black it need the maximum power to block the backlight from getting through
LCD vs OLED Comparison | www.lcdtv.net
Take a look at the Energy Consumption part of the article

posted some info here a while back, and user Delmeister followed up with some detailed measurements.
big bb is right, LCD uses more for blacks, and the blacks aren't as black as OLED. But what needs to be done is to find a middle ground. Something good outdoors and something that doesn't use as much power.Stuff

ok, so i have absolutely no clue about this kind of stuff, but...
if bb10 devices will really have OLED-screens...hmn..
aren't those the screens which are absolutely horrible in sunlight, meaning you can't see a damn thing?
but im really not sure, maybe someone can help me out here and explain, thanks : )
It'll look something like this if they use OLED.
OLED SCREEN EXAMPLE. CLICK ME!!!!
By the way, it's full brightness and showing colours, black and white text does not look any better.Stuff

What you were describing for LCDs is true of many of them, but not all, and definitely not the PlayBook's. It is therefore quite possible the BB10 phones will also use less power with dark screens, yet still use LCDs.

I've measured the actual power consumption (using my app, which shows the power that the OS reports). It clearly uses less power when showing a black screen than with a white one. This is all I'm saying.
You may do your own research and draw your own conclusions. For all I know, you'll discover that the PlayBook actually uses an OLED screen! I have no idea about that... I only know what I and others have measured using the tools available.

Then there is the blue tint that taints everything, the problem of screen burn in, and visibility drops down to in sunlight.
A quality IPS-LCD 1280 x 720 would provide a much better experience.

Yes - My S3's AMOLED screen is particularly horrendous in sunlight. My 9900 was far better. I do like the deep blacks though.
Hoping BB10 screens will get the best of both to go along with it's 356 ppi sharpness.Remember to RTFM.

Whatever the screen, it has been rumored, and might even be confirmed at this point, that it has a screen sensor built in which will automatically adjust to the various conditions that you use it in, and will adjust accordingly, which IF this does work as the way it is intended, one should be able to see it clearly no matter what conditions you are using it in. I am sure when RIM designed this phone, they took a lot of complaints about other hand sets into consideration and will try to avoid making the same mistakes as on some of the other phones. Not sure how much detail or thought they put into this one, but I am sure it had been addressed at some point in time

Well I guess it's something that I am going to have to learn to live with, if this is the case. Either way, by no means a deal breaker for me. Been with BB's for almost 8 years and never had much of a problem with it.
And I know that current blackberries have the auto-dim/brighten feature, and that it is NOT something new to BB. I am very much aware of that fact. It is just called something different on the new BB10
