But if you detach yourself emotionally for a while, it seems to me that you do shell out a bit for not so much in return in a direct comparison. Not sure I'm right though.
You get covers instead of text listings, you get 3 more font choices, a light to read at night and a better screen. You get X-ray and About the author info and a few more features. It's also suppose to be faster. It's definitely worth the price and the better of the two. You can't compare them as they are not in the same league.
