'Papyrus' adds second screen

Electronic dictionary has touch display to enter Chinese characters

Crave is tempted to issue a challenge to tech manufacturers: Take 5 minutes and actually name your product, rather than spit out a serial number like some convict from A Clockwork Orange. It's Marketing 101 (which we never even took).

Sharp is at least one company that has figured this out, as evidenced by its "Papyrus" line of electronic dictionaries. And its latest model seems as creative as its name, at least on paper (sorry), though it's apparently available only in China. It has two screens--the main display and a smaller touch screen in the touchpad area, where a stylus can be used to write characters for the dictionary to translate, according to I4U News. We might have to sign up for some language classes just to try it out.
