Facebook.com : EA6500 and EA6700

OK. So what is the difference between the 6500 and 6700? Besides the USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 port.

Found this link: http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/other/ces-2013/31989-cisco-linksys-ces-2013-announcements. Based on the link, EA6700 is one of the new routers that linksys will be releasing. Based on the link, EA6700 is basically EA6500(reviewed),  with two USB 3.0 ports replacing dual USB 2.0 ports. It is also mentioned on the link that there are new applications that will come with this new router:  File Finch (Fresh Consulting): Personal cloud for remote file access; Qnext for Facebook(Qnext Corp.): Facebook connector for files stored on your Smart Wi-Fi router; save@home (Xoriant): One click saves photos from your smart phone to your Smart Wi-Fi router. A smart network map is also included with this new router.

Re: Facebook.com : EA6500 and EA6700

Thanks. Looking at the Community thread, it said that BOTH ports were USB 3.0 for the 6700. On the CES announcement link it says "The EA6700 comes with two USB ports, one of which is USB 3.0." Any idea which one is correct?
