-- Less expensive (or at the very least not more expensive) than a Kindle.
-- Room to customize, especially in organization of files and font size.
-- Well made. I don't intend to have more than one e-reader, at least for a very long while.
--Decent battery life.
-- SD card storage.
-- Text to speech.
-- The ability to play MP3s for audio books.
-- Having to download on a computer and transfer to the device (actually prefer it.)
Have you considered an Astak Pocket Pro? It's a wonderful 5" device that does all the options I have left listed from your lists up above. And it's a great price and comes in many different colours.
