1Gb is not enough info.
The devices with 512-byte pages should work much the same (perhaps a 
difference in the addressing).
The devices with 2048-byte pages will work quite a bit differentrly.

Also, check that the pins are the same on the packages. I have seen some 
devices with extra pins that had to be held in a different state to work.
