Sharp sure likes to milk this e-dictionary form factor, but this latest trip around the block might be too much. The new PW-TC930 includes a 4.3-inch 480 x 272 screen, media playback of the MP3 and JPEG varieties off of SD cards, and all that usual translation tomfoolery. The big upgrade this time around? Bird and insect noises. Yeah, apparently Sharp is beefing up the Britannica-based encyclopedia functionality with audio samples, boring nature ones included. Lucky for us, Sharp stuffed in a 1seg TV tuner as well so we can avoid this whole "learning things" paradigm The Man is trying to box us into.
