Casio's New English-Speaking Dictionary

Casio look to have missed the boat as far as this summer's soccer World Cup is concerned. The electronics maker is set to release the XD-S8500, an electronic dictionary that pronounces English words, on June 20th. The device, with a list price of ¥45,000, includes four dictionaries - English, Japanese, E-J and J-E and has a database of 14,000 prerecorded words. The company is targeting English-language students, with a sales target of 5,000 units a month.
