AMOLED, or SLCD..
Here's a cool screen shot of what's to come for those who get a new Inc by the end of the month.
Sending from my phone makes the photo smaller, I can repost later.

Oooh! Where'd you snap that? Be sure to send it to Kyle or Phil. This is the first "confirmation" that I am aware of that the Dinc will in fact have the SLCD screen. Neither HTC nor Verizon has announced that (HTC only announced for the N1 and Desire -- HTC in fact said in July that they had no plans to put it on the Dinc, as they thought they could keep up with demand using AMOLED).
Edit: does that model number say ADR6300VW3?

Yes the SLCD is better in direct sunlight. Image quality wise the average person will not be able to tell the difference side by side. However with that being said the SLCD doesn't have as vibrant of colors when compared side by side. But really I don't think you will see a difference with either one that makes one better than the other.

I interface with my phone 90% inside, and probably 10% outside. The 10% that I'm outside, the screen can be pretty darn hard to see...however the 90% that I'm inside, the screen is gorgeous.
The other 'con' about AMOLED (battery life) no longer really applies with all the super cool kernels floating around out there.

Surprised nobody has linked this yet.
Spot the difference: HTC Desire's SLCD versus AMOLED -- Engadget
Engadget's conclusion: pretty close on visuals, but the AMOLED screen is actually easier on the battery (recall, HTC said that SLCD should bring improved power efficiency). Good lord, I can only imagine what that would mean for an SLCD-equipped Dinc!
If you've been toying with whether you need a warranty replacement, get it started now, folks!
