Sharp launches dictionary with voice feedback, MP3

updated 03:50 pm EST, Mon December 18, 2006

Sharp MP3 Dictionary

Sharp on Monday started delivering its RD-CX100 electronic dictionary. Intended for travelers in or to southeast Asia, the folding handheld translates between English, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, and other local languages using an extremely large 63-volume word library. Importantly, translations can be spoken to the user through Sharp's Voxware voice feedback system for use in conversations. An eBook reader is built-in for normal text.

As a secondary element, the dictionary can play audiobooks and other files in MP3 format. An FM radio provides music when storage is unavailable. The CX100 should be available today in Korea for $334.
