Recently with the model Papyrus PW-GT550, must have taken Nintendo’s DS in to consideration. The PW-GT550, as seen in the picture, adds a small second LCD touchscreen below the keypad. Sharp has noted that this addition of a writeable touchpad will allow a user to write a Chinese character that the user is unfamiliar with. Then, the system itself will comprehend what’s written and display an instant translation along with a pronunciation of the character.

Apart from the unique dual-screen feature, the PW-GT550 will also allow a user to load up the dictionary with MP3s for learning and for entertainment purposes, despite the fact that a separate SD card for file storage will be separately required.

The unit will be released in Japan later this month in pink and white versions for approximately $467 USD or 56,700 Yen. If you’re not a big fan of the touchscreen, a lite version will be available at $364 or 44,100 Yen.
