You appear to have a Japan-spec docking base that has a FeliCa card reader. This was Sony's RFID money card (like the new "chip" credit cards)- the reader let the pc owner make internet purchases with the card. Not much use for it outside of Japan.

hmm, guess one could gut out the drawer and use it either for additional data storage via UsB link, or use it just for keeping odds and ends like paper clips lol
