Casio's New Toy

Electronics maker Casio is to release a new dictionary that packs digital versions of an industry-leading 70 different volumes. The ExWord XD-H6500 includes seven English dictionaries, including the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary American English and the Genius Eiwa Jisho. It also includes a function that allows users to look up an English word using katakana pronunciation. A word search or translation brings up resuts from all seven dictionaries at once. Up to 1,500 English references can be stored in a Word/sentence directory. It goes on sale on October 1 and retails for ¥47,250. Casio expects to sell 15,000 units a month.
