Sharp will introduce a small handheld device that can translate spoken japanese into English and vice-versa.

This is similar to the Sony PSP Talkman. I assume the new Sharp translator is more sophisticated. It runs IBM speech recognition software that is normally run on PCs.

The US military has been using a PDA-sized device called Pharselator since 2003.Sharp plans to introduce the device by the end of the year at a price of around 60,000 yen (~$508).
