An interesting review

I found a quite detailed review of the new Ex-Word Casio electronic dictionaries on the Tokyo Tsure Zure Gusa web site. Other than the larger screen, Quick Palette and the Action Sensor listed before in this thread, the review describe a feature that I was not aware of, which seems to be very useful...

Re: New Casio electronic dictionaries: XD-GF9800 & XD-GF10000

I have good news.
The price for the GP9700 dropped already by 3,000¥. On the other hand, the XD-GF10000 sells already for 48,437¥, which is 11,000¥ under the MSRP.

Re: New Casio electronic dictionaries: XD-GF9800 & XD-GF10000

you might want to check out whiterabbitpress.com, the prices there are reasonable too and I've had good service and you will get your dictionary faster than if you order from amazon.jp. Even if you do get a cheaper sell price, shipping from Japan will probably eliminate your savings. Thank you Infi...

Re: New Casio electronic dictionaries: XD-GF9800 & XD-GF10000

Thank you very much Clay. Your post helped me to decide that it makes no sense to buy the GF9800. And the GP10000 it's far to expensive for what it can offer to me compared to the GF9700.

New Casio electronic dictionaries: XD-GF9800 & XD-GF10000

I was about to order the Casio XD-GP9700 from Amazon Japan when I stumbled upon a link about the release of 3 new Casio dictionaries: XD-GF9800 XD-GF10000 XD-GF6900 (due to the lack of Kenkyusha's dictionaries, this one is not interesting for me) A feature comparison of the 3 new dictionaries can be...
