The New Dynavox Xpress

The new Dynavox Xpress
  • 1.5 pounds
  • 6"x4"x1.4" (tiny, but not as tiny as an iPod)
  • 5" screen
  • touch screen with sweep and scroll screen (like iPhone or Blackberry storm)
  • touch screen needs no calibration
  • visual and/or auditory scanning
  • hot swap batteries (3.5 hours) (Yay!)
  • standard battery (8 hour)
  • magnesium case
  • 8G flash memories
  • three voice choices (ATT&T, Acapela, Loquendo)
  • front firing speakers
  • external volume control (YES YES YES!!!)
  • Wi-fi
  • bluetooth
  • infrared remote control
  • contacts and calendar
  • MP3 and video players
  • can use AccessIT to control computer
  • InterAACt system with new core vocab settings (You all know I am not a fan of InterAACt - especially VSDs - for most students in our severe/multi-disabled classes, hopefully we can get Gateway on the Xpress if we need to - Dynavox care to comment?)
My questions:
  • Boardmaker Bridge?
  • Picture symbols sets? (I assume the same Dynasym/PCS mixed up mess as on Series 5)
  • Price, I can't find it anywhere?
