iRiver D5 e-dictionary

iRiver is now selling its D5 pocket electronic dictionary in the US. The D5 Dicple will translate back and forth between Korean and English, as well as Korean to Japanese and Chinese. It also features a 3-inch, 480x272 resolution screen. Typing in text is accomplished via a 52-key QWERTY keyboard.

Other talents of the D5 e-dictionaries include the ability to play back MPEG-4 SP and AVI videos, or MP3, WMA and OGG audio files. Photo and text viewers are also part of the package. A built-in FM radio and recording capabilities for both it and voice are more audio functions. While a speaker is evidently integrated, it's not clear whether or not the dictionary function will read words out loud to help with their pronunciation.

The D5 is offered with two flash memory capacities; 2GB and 4GB, with dictionary data taking up 640MB in either model. iRiver includes earphones, a carrying pouch and USB 2.0 cable with each D5.

The device is available on iRiver's site now in either black and white, and sells for $300 for the 2GB version and $350 for the 4GB D5. [via Pocketables]
