Canon VWU-100 is a Japanese word processing package released in 1985 consisting of the following two cartridges:

  • VW-100 Japanese Word Processor Cartridge "V-Word" compatible with MSX1 and higher computers - it contains about 44000 words
  • VK-100 Kanji-ROM Cartridge (JIS1)

A similar package was also built by Canon and released by Konami under the reference EC-700 consisting of the EC-701 Japanese Word Processor and the EC-702 Kanji-ROM. However, the dictionary of this version has 42000 words instead of 44000.

You can also notice that the VW-100 cartridge has an unusual big size.

Official price: ¥34,800
