Think main difference will new licensing model with IOS 15.x, other than that it's just new generation of ISR router, so better, faster more efficient.

IOS difference: Services On-Demand: The Cisco 2900 Series Integrated Services Routers reduce initial capital outlays by decoupling the delivery of software from hardware on optional service modules. In addition, you receive a Universal IOS image capable of enabling all of Cisco's rich IOS features and allowing you to quickly deploy new services.

As others have noted, later router series, marketed for the same market niche, tend to offer more performance per unit cost. Later series also are newer in their support life cycle. Later series often have newer hardware and software features (the latter, though might be available, at least for a little while, on the older series with IOS upgrades). Also when it comes to features, you might find some removed as Cisco feels they are no longer really desired by the market.

The build-in LAN connectivity in 2900 is gigabit ethernet while the 2800 is fast ethernet.

". . . while the 2800 is fast ethernet."

Depends on the model.  True for 2801 and 2811 but 2821 and 2851 have gig Ethernet ports.
