Unboxing of an e-dictionary that looks like the pioneer series calcs
Recently when looking around on the internet I came across this vintage electronic dictionary. It's a 1990s Chinese - English two way dictionary with very basic calculating capabilities.
The device is designed and built in HongKong. It's manufacturer - GSL - is still alive today, and apparently they're quite proud[1] of this product, being the first ever pocket Chinese English dictionary.

   
   
   
(Hmm.. Finally a vintage Chinese product that doesn't has a ton of broken English written on its package. Not a bad start for a product that is purposed to aid English Learning.)

   
The quality of the user manual and the warranty card are surprisingly well. It's nowhere near the hp quality, but an order of magnitude higher than the average level in China back then.

   
...as well as a cheapy sleeve.
