New Sharp color e-book reader with 4.3" screen

Sharp's new device, the RD-CX100, is a dictionary and e-book reader with a color screen. It appears to be an LCD display, and has the recognizable Sharp look to it.

Some of the features:
* Linux based
* 4.3" color screen
* FM Receiver
* Audiobook support
* E-book support
* Multi-lingual dictionary
* Brushed aluminum clamshell with keyboard
* About $330 price

Some important qualities are not yet clear, such as what e-book/audiobook formats are supported, screen resolution, battery life, storage capacity, etc.

We'll have to also determine whether or not it's available outside of Japan. So many of these gadgets are just a Japanese tease, because they can't be obtained except through importers who do some basic language conversions on these types of devices.
