Gadget lookalikes: SII’s Sony-wannabe

Gadget lookalikes: SII’s Sony-wannabe

Anyone got an idea where SII might've looked to get "design inspiration" for their DB-J990 electronic dictionary?  No?  Well, I'm sure the Sony VGN-UX50 is blushing right about now.  But aside from flattery through imitation, does the J990 hold up?  To be fair it's not just a dictionary; it also has the Mobipocket eBook reader, an mp3 player, supports Word, Powerpoint, PDF and HTML documents.
