Sharp adds PW-TC920 to Papyrus lineup

Sharp_papyrus_pwtc920Even though I sometimes have to squint to see the value of multimedia e-dictionaries to the U.S. market, I’m still quite fond of them. What I like most is not the mini clamshell design, but the way manufacturers continue to make substantial gains against the Asian PMP industry.

Take, for example, the upcoming Sharp PW-TC920, the company’s latest addition to its Papyrus line. Soon to be available in either red or black, the device’s touchscreen character pad and upgraded 1Seg digital tuner are notable improvements over last year’s PW-TC900. TV reception and general image quality are said to be superior to the old model, though the swiveling 4.3-inch widescreen (480 x 272) display or paltry 1GB-supporting SD slot haven’t changed.

If your definition of the height of mobility includes looking up words and watching TV on the go and you’ll be in Japan on June 29th, you can pick up the 5.2" x 3.6" x 0.9" PW-TC920 for about $450 (55,000 yen).
