electronic dictionaries

My electronic dictionary has been really useful in Japan, in particular for studying. I'm too slow with regular dictionary texts, because I don't recall the ordering of the hiragana characters too well. So the electronic dictionary is perfect. I carry it arround with me all the time.

Hi Winifred! Actually it doesn't look like a palm. It's a regular Canon electronic dictionary, with a keyboard and everything. Like the ones in Kinokuniya. For online translators, I like to use http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/cgi-bin/cgiwrap/jwb/wwwjdic?9C
