It's pretty cool that you can snap a photo of it, but I imagine it has to be a very clear font. Should have made it a cartridge (if for some reason it didn't fit on DSiWare and added voice recognition of the words too though.

I just spent my 1000 points last night (Pyoro and Mario & Donkey Kong) and I did see this.  I ummmed about it, and now I think I want it -  Japanese would be handy.  I assumed it would be all European languages.  Maybe when I buy some more points and there is more than just this I could be interested in, I will get it. 
 
English could come in handy for a few people around here  :-)

How big is the file I wonder?  I don't have a DSi, but even just a Japanese dictionary is pretty big, like 128 or 256MB...
