We're having a hard time seeing where the "dictionary" part of this device comes into play -- all we're seeing is 3.5-inches of touchscreen LCD and a nice little PMP wrapped around it. The Nurian FX1 from Hannuri Biz hits Korea this month, and includes a "Speed Search Bar" for looking up them words...

Korea's Hannuri Biz has a new "electronic dictionary" for the country that seems to be so obsessed with 'em, recently introducing its Nurian X10 device. Apart from its overwhelming orangeness, this one looks to be fairly standard fare as far as these things go, with the somewhat notable addition of...

Damn if iriver can't build'em some sexy. Meet the D5, the Brad to the NV's Angelina. As we heard last week, the D5 is an electronic dictionary... but also so much more. At just 14.9-mm thick closed, the D5 Dicple packs a 3.0-inch, 480 x 272 pixel TFT display for all your flash and MPEG-4 video whil...

Word to pretenders: don't step. Sharp's not kidding around with this electronic dictionary stuff, and the 20GBs of hard drive space it stuffed into the new RD-CX300 should be proof to any fools who doubt its resolve. Other than the beefy storage, the dictionary is quite simliar to its CX200 predece...

The category of "electronic dictionary" was already stretched to its limits with all that MP3, game and video functionality manufacturers have been stuffing in, but it looks like we've officially advanced beyond any sort of reasonable definition with this here nurian Z1 from Hanuribiz.

You know, Casio ain't the only game in town when it comes to these e-dictionary units that seem to be so popular in Asia. The folks at Digital Cube might not be willing to do something so silly as attach a keyboard to one of their PMPs, but they've apparently done just about everything else to prep...

Sharp's so-called "electronic dictionaries" have never exactly just been dictionaries, bolstering the usual array of definitions and language translations with everything from e-books to mobile TV to MP3s.

It may not boast quite the versatility of its souped-up Linux-based "electronic dictionary," but if you're just looking for some basic e-book reading capabilities along with your multi-lingual dictionary, Sharp's new RD-CX100 looks like it may fit the bill. It'll handle both audio books and regular...

Asia loves 'em some electronic dictionaries. Some even feature mobile TV, MP3 playback and FM tuners. But it's not everyday one comes along sportin' an old iBook clamshell and WiFi. This WinCE 5.0 Pro device from HANNURI BIZ brings a 5-inch touchscreen and oddball QWERTY which looks nicer than it w...

Hey, no one can blame you for thinking that's the latest UMPC, ultra-portable XP thingamabob, or PMP. After all, Sharp's Papyrus PW-TC900 does feature a QWERTY keyboard, 20-hour battery (5-hours for TV), SD slot for expansion, and 4.3-inch, 480×272 resolution display which rotates 180-degrees...
