The Sharp PW-N8000 features for instance the Encyclopaedia Britanica that contains photos that can be viewed on a 4.3" 480×272 pixel screen.
A query history is stored on an SD-card. There are other dictionaries available of course for this new Sharp Electronic Dictionary.
This model is getting very close to a PDA. There is no price yet available for the PW-N8000, but I do not think it is much cheaper than a decent PDA.
More details in this Sharp press-release (Japanese).

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.
