From reading the e-book.org forum i can see that developing an alternative software for a Sony reader is not an easy task.So i guess i have to learn to live with one-level folder structure.
Wow, i dont envy those with thousands of books on their reader.
And not being able to keep a chosen order within a collection is surely on oversight on Sony's part? Doesnt make sense to me.
Has that been the case with previous Sony readers?
Lousy Software has long been a Sony tradition, in virtually every product line. The lack of folders was, umm, lacking on the 300 as well. I don't know about the others, I'm too new to eReaders.
But on a device with limited space like the 300/350, just how important is folder capability overall? I mean, I could see its need on a device with a memory card slot or much larger memory. Doesn't the memory capacity of the 3xx line pretty much require a load, read, delete strategy? I suspect the collections capability of the 3xx line was considered an equivalent capability for short term organization needs. (don't know - just speculating)
