Doosan Prime AP760
Doosan today took the wraps off its new Prime AP760 translator. As the company's new flagship, the laptop-shaped handheld is designed to cover virtually every aspect of visiting a new country, especially English-speaking nations: of the 103 dictionaries onboard, 41 are solely for English, the company says. The translator further adds a pronounciation guide and a touchscreen to the 4.6-inch display for recognizing southeast Asian characters.
Some multimedia options are also there for longer trips: MP3 playback is supported either from the internal stereo speakers or a set of earbuds, as is voice recording. Doosan ships the AP760 with a 1GB removable SD card on April 15th for $307 in its native Korea, though the company also has a shop for English-speaking customers that may offer the device soon.
