JE-200 vs JE-100

Why does the JE-200 cost so much more then the JE-100? Is the screen any better? And how does the performance compare? My hope had been that they would have increased the amount of Ram that is available, but it still included only 64 MB. http://www.jointech.com.hk/products_JE200.html

Where did you find a price for the JE-200 ? How much is it ?

I had paid $250 shipped for my JE-100 and am very happy with it as a dedicated e-reader.

Going by the specs of the JE-200 and comparing it with the specs for the JE-100, the only two 'real' differences that I see are --

1) 128MB in-device storage, increased from 64MB
2) Support for SDHC cards added (JE-100 only accepted SD cards, not SDHC)

Other than this, the processor is still 400MHz and the RAM is still 64MB; so I find it kinda hard to believe that the JE-200 is faster than the JE-100.

Sure, they have updated the JTOS software that sits on top of the core WinCE5.0, and added a few more built in e-reader apps ... but I already do this (and have a much better setup with more reader apps, IMHO) on the JE-100 by directly accessing the WinCE OS.

So if they are really charging a lot more for the JE-200, I would be VERY interested in knowing what other differences are between the two.

UPDATE:
Never mind, found the price at Sale4Online, which is the storefront for JoinTech themselves.

$399 for the JE-200 ... while the JE-100 is still $250. Unless I know more, I would assert anyone paying $150 extra for the JE-200 is simply crazy ... unless they absolutely have to have SDHC support !!

I agree 100% Also of note, the jointeck site lists both devices as having "On Board OS Storage: Nand Flash 128 MB" see jointeck or read Coldsun's excellent review.
