KFHD 7" vs KFHD 8.9" diffs (besides scrn size!)

A couple of years ago I bought the Kindle DXG 9.7" thinking it was a larger (and therefore better for me) version of the 6" K3. My mistake. The software seemed not to quite be as functional as the k3-keyboard 6"...never updated, and now it is being discontinued. And I purchased the expensive Amazon cover, which seemed to freeze the device and I had to remove it! I do like the larger screen for PDFs, but the plastic frame has cracked in a couple of places and basically it is on "borrowed" time I think.

Has any of these type of discrepancies (software, support) been noticed between the KFHD 7" and 8.9" devices? I realize the larger device just shipped, but perhaps there are comments? Any other people have concerns?

Does anyone feel that the add'tl $100 is worth the screen size increase? I would prefer the 8.9" size - older eyes and all that, primarily for WWW browsing and videos - but I am hesitant to get myself into a similar situation once again.

I appreciate any opinions!
