The alternative is - I don't use a current generation ereader, or a future generation ereader without it, and I don't think that I would be alone in making that choice.

Dedicated ereaders face stiff competition from tablet devices, so one wonders how much longer they'll be developed anyway.
Have you taken a look at the Nook Glow? It might fit your needs.
