Feature wish list for new sony reader
I had been using ipod touch to read for a while. I find out that using ipt highlight and then snap shot screen is a very effective way of note taking for me, and I kind like this kind of feature. If new sony reader can allow user to take screen snap shots that will be great (a button for snap shot that will be great).
So what are your wishes for new features? want to hear them as well.

What I would like to see:
Sort-by-author name to sort by author's last name, not first name
I probably won't actually replace my reader anytime soon, though.

Metal bezel, like the old 600, 650 series.
5" model, like the old 300, 350, and Kobo Mini.

- Battery indicator and clock displayed all the time.
- An "expert mode" that allows to make corrections in non-drm'ed books and, possibly, to the CSS.
- Ability to sideload ebooks via wi-fi.

1) That it has an excellent built-in light
2) That the apparently unfounded rumors of its existence are true.
In that order.

1. 350 size - if they can squeeze in 1/4" of more screen space (maybe slightly taller screen in same body?) great but 5" is fine.
2. Physical page turn buttons on side of body - and silent click
3. Font management built in
4. Decent font size management built in, like available once PRS+ and Zorked etc
5. User option to switch Author sort by last or first name
6. Blue... it's lovely.
For me that's it - don't need / never used the stylus, and a bedside lamp is ok rather than lit ereader screen.
Still love my PRS-350 & calibre.

I'm waiting to see what Sony come up with before deciding to go for it or wait for the Paperwhite II, so:
1. Front-lit tech similar to Glo/PW
2. Physical page turn buttons on side of body
3. Blue like the 350 would be nice instead of just silver/black
4. Maintain good quality dictionary/ stability etc of previous Sonys
5. Competitive price

1. Front lit OR a screen that is equal in contrast to reading a high quality paper book.
2. Capacitive touch screen and no buttons.
3. Higher resolution than the current T2.
4. Font size controllable in single point jumps
5. Adjustable margins and line height spacing.
6. Ultra slim case available that is both lightweight and reasonably priced.
