Kobo future Hardware feature request thread

Hi Folks,

We have a dedicated firmware features request thread, but the firmware can only go so far as the hardware can support it, so why not have a hardware request thread as well; what features have you seen on other devices, or maybe haven't seen on any device yet, that you would like to see on your beloved Kobo.

Personally, I have a couple that I'd like to see:

- user replaceable battery would be top of my list. I tend to upgrade my tech gear realatively often (Although less so since my disposable income isn't so disposable anymore..*Sigh*), but I usually will pass my old stuff down the line in the family. Would be nice if I could refurbish the battery before passing it off if needed.

- touch screen. While it does increase the price of the device, it makes it very useful for both right and left handed people. A Wacom screen/pen would be nice for jotting down notes.

- centered main joystick, if the above is not feasible.

Personally, that would be more or less on the hardware side. the device itself is pretty good as is otherwise. Everything else would fall under software/firmware improvements, and I think that's covered well enough in the other post..

cheers!
