As long as the ebook is DRM free...
And indeed, I forgot to mention that my primary language isn't English, but my requirement about multiple dictionaries, and a search-functionality 'not only in English' could have told that I would like to read books that aren't English... (And my English grammar and spelling should have told you that it's not my primary language )
And so I will have to turn to European bookstores, who sell DRM-protected content, that can't be read on a Kindle.

I know, I forgot to mention lots of things that are important to me in my first post... but that's partly because I only have an ereader for a week, and don't realize yet what could be an important factor...

Don't want to start an argument pro or contra Amazon, pro or contra Kindle... I just think Kindle isn't exactly the right ereader for some-one in Europe who wants to read in Dutch, French, German and Italian, apart from some English books.
