So-called "e-dictionaries" don't often make the trip over here, but iriver broke that trend with its D5 clamshell device, which suggests that it just might also do the same with its new D1000 follow-up. Of course, like its predecessor, this device is quite a bit more than just a dictionary, with it...

Sure, it's no Zaurus, but Sharp's new RD-PM10 certainly is a looker. It packs a 4.3-inch WQVGA screen, QWERTY keyboard and 8GB of storage into a pretty delightful form factor, and while it's only designed for light e-dictionary and media playback duties, with Windows CE 5.0 as the backbone, we coul...

Hannuri Biz already delivered that one-two punch with its FX1, but the long awaited successor (TX-3) has finally hit the scene. Launched over in its home nation of South Korea, this PMP / e-dictionary hybrid boasts a 4-inch touchscreen (480 x 272), an SDHC expansion slot, 1,050mAh rechargeable batt...

While we're quite certain you can still buy an "electronic dictionary" that is actually only a dictionary (or, maybe, a thesaurus), that seems to be the exception to the rule in Korea, where devices like the Udea Expert 300W are the norm. Apparently, this is the first such dictionary to boast built...

One thing's for sure about Digital Cube's i-station UDIC: it's not your mother's electronic dictionary. Boasting a full (albeit tiny) QWERTY keyboard and a unique swivel screen, the HDD-packin' device could easily be mistook for a miniature UMPC (a convertible one, at that). Just in case you've for...

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 w...

It looks like Digital Cube's i-station brand knows no bounds, with it emblazoning everything from UMPCs to PMPs to GPS/PMP/DMB combos, and now even the ever-popular and slightly perplexing "electronic dictionary." That latest entry comes in the form of the i-station UDIC which, like most electronic...

We know it's not natural to get all funny about an e-dictionary, but we can't help it -- iriver's little D5 gets us hot under the collar. You may remember seeing this multi-use, flip-open device in its original black, but luckily for us the company has decided to issue a new color that we can oggle...

Hannuri Biz has a knack for sprucing plain ole e-dictionaries up with enough multimedia capabilities to still make them relevant, and it's proving yet again that these things still have a place in our world with the vividly colored nurian X10. Aside from sporting an external LCD surrounded by playb...

We aren't exactly sure why a media-playing e-dictionary has us this jazzed up, but it probably has something to do with that absolutely delicious design. Whatever the case, it's available now in South Korea for ???278,000 ($301) -- got a cheap ticket to Seoul, anyone?

No details were provided, just this, a new splash image on iriver's Korean home page. That "D" in the model number, however, likely stands for dictionary like the D5 before it. We're also expecting a QWERTY beneath that hinged surface. Color up, contents up? WiFi, HSDPA... who knows. Really, who kn...
