That would be enough for now. SD card image, of course.

I'm reading list management (what I would like is to "remove book from I'm reading list, but keep the bookmark in it).

It was talked about http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=83436 with the management being in the desktop program. I would prefer it in the Kobo as I dont use the desktop managment program generally.

I'd be suprised if I saw a firmware update in August

Just because they have been mentioned it doesn't necessarily mean that it will be implemented. It means they are trying to implement (semantics I know)

Yes, landscape reading for epubs would ROCK, particularly if given the option to choose which way it rotates. C'mon, throw us southpaws a bone here!
