I guess different device batches have different revisions of the
internal MMC chip. This is quite normal, since the manufacturer
constantly improves their designed/fixes bugs in the MMC controller on
the chip etc. During this process stuff gets modified (e.g. the scrap
space used for error correction). So if the difference is little this is
the explanation.

On this matter. Are there any inside pictures from the N810 yet?
