I would love to see a few things in a Kindle. Your personal ideals may differ, but all thoughts are welcome and comments appreciated.
First on my list is a built in light. Much as the rumors have denoted, it's possible that future Kindle models will, while still using e-ink and normally produce no light of their own, be visible at night by simply turning on their light/s. I found the clip on light I used for my Kindle did not resolve this issue, and discouraged me from trying others as the one I tried (at the time) was highly recommended.
Next up, a touchscreen built into the keyboard model. This would mean using the physical keys for tasks that favor the medium, such as typing, while also having touchscreen for quickly selecting books from a digital shelf (such as how things are presented on the Kindle Fire) or for browsing the web. I suspect that touchscreen is also favorable for making highlights in books, but I find it's less than enjoyable for typing tasks I would never forego a keyboard if I can avoid and so would like to see both on a model.
I wonder if I wouldn't be happier with a touchscreen only model that had buttons for page turning, and a solid accessory keyboard. This is extremely unlikely to happen, but if done similarly (albeit likely physically attached) to that on the iPad I could see enjoying it.
Further delving into the realm of unlikely, seeing something like a Mirasol screen on a Kindle. From the look of things, they are good enough for photographs and comparable to e-ink for reading tasks. Color would be quite useful for magazines and book covers, which in some regard goes back to wanting a touch screen for scrolling through bookshelves of beautiful covers.
So, what would you like to see in a future Kindle model?
