Sony PRS300 and PRS600 Service Manuals?

Market rumours of a new Sony reader took a further step forward today with the leak of two service manuals on the Internet. The new models appear to be a PRS300 and a PRS600 which would obviously replace, or compliment the PRS500 and PRS700 respectively.

To view the documents as PDFs: PRS300, PRS600

The most depressing aspect of the specs is the continuation of their BBeB format. Sony championed the adoption of the 'open' epub format and Adobe’s ACS4 DRM but seem to forget to mention Adobe ebooks (PDF) which play perfectly in the device and are fully supported by ACS4 and widely adopted and still talk about their own format as if the market cares.
