If we use the Sony Reader as a standard, it must have more features at the same price or the same features at a lower price. That said:

1. No DRM. Our group is too small to have anything developed for it alone.
2. Support for basic formats such as DOC, HTML, RTF (with pictures), TXT, and PDF.
3. Replacable battery or very long life battery.
4. USB interface and have it look like a USB device to the computer.
5. Organized storage -- no flat model only.
6. User defined fonts.
7. Card slot -- SD is fine.

Nice to have but not a must for me:

8. Search
9. Zoom
10. Touch screen
11. Application interface (SDK) for other program loading

Interesting but mostly useless

12. Ability to read and display prior formats such as RB, PDB, LIT

I'm sure I will slap my head as I read other posts and say, "Why didn't I put that one down."
