As a Kindle owner I really like mine but I would wait for the new Nook Touch that comes out this month. It's got some really nice features and it uses Epub. It does have the new Pearl screen and a SD Card Slot. The backing is rubberized and it's an ounce lighter and smaller/thinner then a Kindle. B&N claims battery life is 2 months. It however does not have a browser like the Kindle but it's faster and less page flashing.
I like the idea of touch screen but it still has page turn buttons on either side. The Kindle 3 navigation is not the best. The five way button is not made for fat fingers with the back button underneath it, I can't count how many times I hit it instead of the 5 way! However If Kindle comes out with a touch ereader comparable to the Nook Touch I would go with that in second!
As for Calibre, Epub/Lit/Html work best for conversation. PDF is the worst and takes some skill and several software programs to get a good editable copy. I prefer Epub as my source as long and it is an original. It converts to Mobi beautifully! Calibre converted epub not so much when working with Mobi.
