What I'm looking for is a British english dictionary, I'd assume the OED and Collins would be British but have no idea if they do US versions too (which would be more likely sold from the US based mobipocket), the descriptions do not give any hints
Fair enough, but with those dictionaries one can tell from their names. The Collins and Oxford dictionaries (except those which have "American" in their name) are British; the ones with "Webster" in their name are American. These are all extremely well-known dictionaries.

MobiPocket aren't American-based, by the way; they're French. They are owned by Amazon, but that's a very recent development; they've been around for many, many years.
