If you're in the market for a digital voice recorder, check out the ICD-U50, which comes with headphones, offers MP3 playback, and features a built-in USB plug.
Sony Electronics announced Thursday it will bundle its digital voice recorders with Lernout & Hauspie's Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 5 of its speech-recognition software. The two products--the ICD-MS1VTP Memory Stick Digital Voice Recorder and the ICD-R100VTP Digital Voice Recorder--allow people to quickly turn voice recordings into text documents on a PC. The ICD-MS1VTP, which will sell for $300, is a palm-sized device that offers 131 minutes of recording time on the 16MB Memory Stick. A 64MB Memory Stick is also available. The ICD-R100VTP is available for $200.
