Sharp TC930 e-dictionary

Targeting Japan and Korea, Sharp has announced a new e-dictionary, the Papyrus PW-TC930. E-dictionaries are popular in Asia as they allow users to get around occasional language barriers; the 930 however may be more comprehensive than most, as it not only helps translate English (complete with spoken words), it offers a pre-loaded guide to birds, insects and other animals, with sounds for approximately 270 species. Should that not be enough, users are granted access to a version of the Encyclopedia Britannica for further reference.

On a technical level the 930 features a 4.3-inch screen and a QWERTY keyboard, with the ability to load JPEG images and MP3 audio. An SD slot provides storage, but unusually, it will not read cards over 1GB in size. The device is due on November 23rd for approximately 53,000 yen ($478). [via Akihabara News]

    Why the heck

    don't they ever gear these translators/e-dicts for English speakers wishing to learn Asian languages. It's always the other way 'round. I know there's no company in America that's willing to design one for Americans. I guess they think that once you're an American there's no point to learning an Asian language. Bad reasoning.

    I've been stuck using an Canon G50 Wordtank for a couple of years and would sure like to move to a better device.
