Operational straight out of the box, it works even when your PC is turned off and comes in at just 4.5 inches high and 4.4 ounces. $399.


Language Line Mobile Interpreter

How’s this for a fabulous idea: Language Line Mobile Interpreter is the first iPhone application to give you access to live interpreters in up to 10 spoken languages, anytime, anywhere, without the hassle of prepaid minutes or long-term contracts — allowing for unlimited, uninterrupted interpretation assistance. Per-minute charges begin when the interpreter joins the call and end when you hang up. Simply download the Language Line Mobile Interpreter application and register; calls are then billed to your credit card number, which is securely kept on file. And translations for the most commonly used phrases are available free of charge — just select a phrase from the menu and, with a touch of a button, listen to the phrase spoken in your chosen language. $2.99 per minute. Available at the iPhone App Store or www.languageline.com/mobile.
