And in a later version (although it would be a nice-to-have), or at least when folders are implemented: SDHC support.

I think this one will require a different hardware controller for the SD card. Don't hold your breath on that one.

Do we know for a fact that the controller is SD only? The Nokia N800 originally didn't support SDHC, but Nokia later updated the firmware to support it, as the hardware was already there. Has anyone opened up a Cybook to look at the hardware?

My current list is:
  • Deletion of files
  • Marking of books that you are currently reading. This would make it easier to find the book you want. Especiall when you use ebook editions which are missing cover images.
  • Sorting option to display the books you are currently reading first in the library.
  • Possibility to get back to book after dictionary lookup with more than one alternative and only using the square button.
  • Folder support.
  • Sorting according to author name.
  • Battery level display while reading a book.
  • Display the real filename so you can know what file to remove if you want to remove a book.
  • Use unit while charging.

Like jbenny says, I'm hoping the controller is SDHC-capable. But even if it's not, I've just tested a (slightly out-of-standard) 4GB SD card. That does actually work in the Cybook.

Yes there are a few of those out there. Some appeared before the standard and some just defy the standard. This is probably a good thing. The SD standards keep making incompatible changes like the one they did between 1 and 2 Gig and then again between 2 and 4 Gig. Kind of stupid if you ask me.

I second all of the above especially folder support and to be able to use the unit while charging.
It would also be nice to have a button for page turning on the left side of the Cybook, that way my right thumb wouldn't become so tired.

Other than that I am very satisfied with the reader

1. Zooming for PDF files
2. I would like the Volume buttons to perform the zooming
3. Folders
4. Genres
5. Read/Unread indicators--sort of like iTunes
6. put the last read file on the top of the library list, its really annoying having to look for it every time.

thanks

What would be nice would be to have an indicator under each book indicating how much you have read. It would also be nice to have a folder "read books" or something like that and a menu option to move a book to that folder. I think I would like to keep the books I have read on the memory card in the reader since it is then easy to recommend and give copy of books to people.

- internal links in html and pdf (like in mobipocket files)
- hyphenation for html and txt files (like in FBreader)

Actually, i can't use internal links (for table of content, footnotes) without using mobipocket creator, and it doesn't work on linux, nor is usable for automatic download and convertion.

I was just thinking it would be nice for the delete button to have three options.
1) Cancel (Oops I hit the wrong button)
2) Move to Previously Read folder (I'd like to archive old books)
3) Delete (Trash)

If I owned a Gen3, I would say the most important upgrades to the next firmware version is to fix all the bugs in the 1.0 version and then from there go onto new features in yet another version.
