I assume your question has nothing to do with the trackball color, but is asking about what shows up on the LCD screen.
The Pearl, just like many, many LCD screens do lousy in daylight or the sun. Over time there have been some super bright PDA and cell phone displays that perform well in direct sunlight, but I have not seen many of those nowadays.
You can download various themes that show up better in bright light, including highlighted items. Some cost money, others are free. You have to experiment with them as most do not advertise as a feature that they work well in bright light situations.
What I do is cup my hand around the display or put it inside a jacket or other spot so I can see. At times I have even had to duck into a building.
