The new Sharp Papyrus PW-GT550 electronic dictionary ads a 2nd screen with touch input.

It seems Sharp releases every other month a new Papyrus. So usually it is not interesting news. The new ones with the touch pad I find quite interesting though. Users can scribble Chinese characters with a stylus and the dictionary translates it. The PW-GT550 also has several learning modes and also can read translations to you. The Sharp PW-GT550 comes in pink and white and sells for 56,700 Yen (~$467) in Japan.
More details in this Sharp press-release (Japanese).
