I do not know how to call it, because the PocketBook company itself uses different names, such as PocketBook Touch 2, PocketBook Touch Lux, PocketBook 623. But they are all the same device (as long they do not have "color" in the name.
From outside the device is identical to the older model PocketBook Touch 622.
The display is HD and is front-lit.
The firmware 4.1 is clearly based on previous models. It seems to be better adapted to touch screen.
The front-light is not as nice as on my PaperWhite. There is very narrow uneven brighter area at the upper edge of the screen and there is shadow at the bottom. The shadow at the bottom reaches to the half of the status line in the book.
I personally perceive the light to be worse than on PaperWhite and better than on Nook.
thanks Kacir - so the major difference is only the light? is the HD making the text sharper?
