the other use for this, especially the smaller prs 300/350, is to hold images of shopping cards with bar codes so that i don't have to carry all these cards.

seriously, what is the problem with this feature that kobos/nooks/kindles don't include it built-in?
My Nook ST had this built in. So did the original Kindles. What they learned over time is that customers would screw things up (image file types or dimensions for instance) and call to complain.

My guess would be if Sony was still making readers, they wouldn't have this any more either.
