A touchscreen crossword puzzle
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

Undated-AP -- You don't need a newspaper to try to solve some of the legendary crossword puzzles from the New York Times.

Excalibur Electronics is selling a portable touch screen crossword puzzle.

It's like a palm pilot. A stylus comes with the unit.

One thousand New York Times crosswords are in the device's memory bank.

It displays the down and across clue and you type in the answer.

Excalibur President Shane Samole says more than 200 thousand hand-held crossword puzzles have been sold in the past year.

It's great for doing crosswords on the go. You can work on the puzzle, press SAVE on the device and work on it later.

Three levels of play are available from beginning to advanced.

Excalibur is also adding a deluxe model. It has a twenty percent larger screen and lets you solve puzzles at night.

The standard model has a suggested retail price of 69-99.
