Sharp Papyrus TV/Dictionary combo

Chris Davies - Nov 20, 2006

Here in Blighty there’s a venerable old TV gameshow called Countdown, in which contestants have to pick a number of random vowels and consonants and are given thirty seconds to make as long a word as possible.  I can only assume that it’s the fanatics of this show that Sharp are targeting with their combination-TV-and-dictionary, the Papyrus PW-TC900.  Rocking not only a 1Seg digital TV tuner (which I’m afraid makes it Japan-only) but a full Japanese dictionary and Japanese-English translator, it also packs an mp3 player and SD memory expansion in a convertible-tablet style casing.  The screen is one of Sharp’s AVS wonders, running at 480×272 resolution.
