A PDA designed for the blind is apparently hitting the shelves in Japan next week.
The PDA that features a set of buttons instead of a screen is called VoiceSense and runs Windows CE.
VoiceSense has a vocal guiding system and allows users to write documents, work with calendar and contact management functions, surf the web and instant message.
The device measures 188x77x25mm and has SD and CF card slots.
The price is pretty high with $2,150.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
