It seems like Sharp likes to make its electronic dictionary upgrades a yearly occurrence, with the company now trotting out its new RD-CX310 model, a nearly right on time follow-up to its not-very-dissimilar RD-CX300 device. Among the upgrades this time around are a roomier 30GB hard drive, along with DivX support in addition to the usual audio / video formats, 82 dictionaries, 20 audiobooks, an FM tuner, and a voice recorder, plus the same 4.3-inch display as before. No word on a price just yet, but we wouldn't expect it to be too far off the $500 the previous model demanded.
