Sharp RD-PM10

A dictionary to have with you on the road? Sure, why not, especially if it's a "netbook-style" one! The Sharp RD-PM10 is a pretty handsome gadget, and while some may claim its place isn't amongst laptops... here's the story to make you change your mind. Ready or not, we're rollin'! This little pocket dictionary comes powered by Windows CE 5.0, and since it also has a full QWERTY keyboard, you can almost call it a netbook. After all, it wouldn't be the first mobile computer without any kind of optical drive, but let's get serious and see the rest of it, shall we?

Apart from using Microsoft's Windows CE, this white beauty packs a screen as large as 4.3 inch (WQVGA resolution), as well as 8GB of storage, but I don't think you'll be able to play Quake on it. Why that?

Well, the Sharp RD-PM10 has been designed only for light e-dictionary duties, and despite the fact it also has some basic media playback features, it won't get too far with that. Damn, if they would add some more interesting and capable OS in future versions...

Anyway, if you're asking yourselves about the price, I guess it's enough to say that the Sharp RD-PM10 has a list price of about $290, but there's no word about its availability in the US just yet. Anyway, as long as it also comes with a microSD slot for expansion, and very good codec support, it could be worth the wait, don't you think?
