iRiver D25 electronic dictionary: one step towards the universal translator


Forgive me while I geek out for a moment. The universal translator is a science fiction technology, seen in every incarnation of Star Trek and as the Babble Fish in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. By providing real time translation, it explains how everyone seems to be speaking English.

While the universal translator may be far away, at least for now we have the iRiver D25 electronic dictionary. The D25 is equipped with Korean, Chinese, English and Japanese dictionaries. Also, it comes with a decent sized 4.3" screen, MP3 player and 1.3 GB of flash memory. For a cool 378,000 Won or 310 EUR, it isn't cheap but will be definitely useful if you plan on attending Nippon 2007, the sci-fi convention taking place in Yokohama, Japan in August of next year.
