Maybe itís because these models are coming out from the same shop but with different labels. One obvious way to reduce cost is to cut down different models and concentrate on providing better software on a single model.
For me, the only thing that will force me upgrade will be if my current reader breaks down or there is a model with more than 7 inch screen having same weight as current 6 inch ereaders. I donít see any chance of that happening at the moment.
