On which device(s) are you waiting for?

Is there any upcoming (mainly reading) device on which you are waiting for or you think it is worth to wait for?

From what i know there will be 3 new devices in the near future:

- new Kindle reader (i don't like the Kindle concept - so i'm not considering this one)

- Sony PSR T2 (from what i've heard the will only be marginally innovations)

- new B&N with revolutionary screen technology (for myself i hope the new screen will be a e-ink color screen)

So what do you think?

I am interested in at least seeing what the T2 is going to be like. I probably will not buy one as I have only had my t1 for less than a year, and am really thrilled with it.

I have heard "rumors" the Kobo may release something this fall, but it's just rumours. If a new model of e-ink reader came out I'll be watching the results of that, because I not impressed with the Kobo Touch right now (My husband inherited my rejected one) when compared to my beloved Sony.

I am waiting for the rumored iPad mini & Kindle Fire 2 to compare with the Nexus 7. I really like the smaller size on a tablet. Also, I'd like to see the new Kindle Touch with built in light.

I'm waiting on an Australian-sold-and-supported front-lit 6 inch e-ink device, perhaps Kobo or (if no other good options) Kindle.

I am waiting on details about the Sony T2. I'm still happy with my K3 & Fire, but I'd be tempted by a Kindle Touch with a built-in light.

I am waiting for a Kindle Touch with a dark bezel, a cover view option on the home page, page turn buttons. Would also prefer an HD screen and a bigger memory capacity.

E-ink readers: none, except for possibly the Japanese edition of the Kindle.

There are some LCD tablets I'm interested in, but I don't consider those reading devices. Nexus 7 has heralded the end of the dedicated LCD reading device.

@ ersott:

http://www.shopereaders.com/product-p/sony-prs-t2.htm

Quote:
The new Sony PRS-T2 will feature an e-ink Pearl display with a resolution of 800×600 pixels. It will have the same infrared technology found in the Kobo Touch and Amazon Kindle Touch. This will allow for pin-point accuracy when you interact with the touchscreen. It will also have full Wi-Fi internet connectivity to tap into the Sony Book Store.
and other german/austrian sources:

http://www.teltarif.de/sony-prs-t2-t...ews/47388.html

it says: 6" e-ink pearl screen with 800x600 pixels, slightly better touchscreen then T1, WLAN, microSD slot.


http://cme.at/geruecht/sony-prs-t2-s...r-ebook-store/

they are expecting - and that is what i would appreciate:
6" e-ink pearl XGA screen with 1024x768 (or more?) with glowlight, WLAN, microSD slot, and a dull bezel. BUT its the older entry..

That link to pre-order a T2 from Shopereader is crap. How can something that hasn't even been announced by the manufacturer be available for pre-order from some third party??

As addition to the upcoming readers:

Onyx has just posted a video showing their latest device. It's a prototype of a 6" touch e-reader with glowlight. For me it looks like a modified Boox i62 and i've read comments saying the same. So maybe this could be a new competitor to Amazon's upcoming glowlight-equipped Kindle?

Video of the device:
