Casio's EW-D4000 electronic Chinese dictionary with tone searching

Casio EW-D4000 electronic dictionary

Casio is parading about their new EW-D4000 electronic dictionary which specializes in access to 6 prominent Chinese dictionaries and throws in access to 11 English dictionaries — for that spontaneous jaunt through Disneyland China, natch. Its claim to fame is the ability to perform a sophisticated search for a Chinese word "with a tone of voice" — this is important since Chinese is a tonal language, dig. The 153,600 pixel, 5-inch display will glow for a maximum of 150 hours before needing a recharge — just about enough juice to translate supercalifragalisticexpialadocious.
