E-reader alternative to Kobo Glo with audio?

Hi

I have ordered Kobo Glo recently however I am now thinking to move onto another device for this or that reason. So I would like to know what the alternatives to Kobo Glo are (beside Kindle Paperwhite).

Things I liked about Kobo Glo

-price
-resolution
-memory extension (this is the reason why I did not buy Kindle)

Things that I also care about

-pdf capabilities
-if possible audio support (for listening audio books)
-additional on device apps (do not care about games)
-weight (lighter the better)
-decent library/device management/mobile software(I use calibre already) but I would not mind if the device comes with additional tools that makes managing the device easier.
-the resolution must be least equal to Kobo Glo`s

thanks

How about the Pocketbook Touch Lux? Same resolution as the Kobo Glo and should be out by the end of the month.

Higher resolution is usually paired with frontlight, and frontlight devices generally don't have audio. You'd have to wait for pocketbook, or look into onyx/icarus devices. Cybook and Tolino have frontlight, but not audio, and I think there was iriver device with high resolution which might have had audio.

A Sony T1 refurb. Very cheap atm. The only downside is it has no light.

Fails the equal-resolution requirement too, doesn't it?
