Yes, a tad old, and maybe forgotten, on their website.
I like the 1100 screen better; something about the interaction of the monochrome font with the backlit LCD screen.
And speaking of fonts, how I liked 'Verdana Bold 8pt' and 'Verdana 12pt' for the small and large print choices.
The GUI is better on the 1150 (same as the REB 1200)! I hated looking up long titles (like 'Author - Series - Title') on the 1100 as there was no way to scroll across, so you were left guessing which ebook you were selecting. And no folders/categories to sort them by!
The HTML (v3.2) support is stronger on the 1150 (and 1200) and that's why I migrated up! However, the 1150 is really cramped for internal memory/space. Per a recent email exchange with Garth Conboy of ETI, I learned that the 1150's 4MB RAM shares code and data whereas the 1200 8MB RAM is all for data. That explained why some very large projects I made would work on the 1200 but would exhaust an internal resource (heap memory) on the 1150 and would then re-boot it! Urrghh!
