Basically, the capacitive layer on the Kobo reduces the sharpness of the fonts. I'll try and post a photo later, but it's difficult to get a good comparison shot. I also prefer the temperature of the comfort light, which tends to make the screen look like real paper and is easier on the eyes than the red of the KA1.

Believe me, I wish the KA1's screen was as good. The software is much better, and I enjoy the larger screen.
