It is true, that the US/Canadian model only comes with 6 dictionaries

6 built-in dictionaries

Utilize the 6 built-in dictionaries to look up a word or translate into English, French or Spanish.
See here

Whereas Sony.at states:
Quote:
Mehrsprachige Wörterbücher
2 ENGLISCH (Großbritannien/USA) und 10 WEITERE SPRACHEN (Französisch/ Spanisch/ Deutsch/ Niederländisch/ Italienisch)[/CODE]
see here

- If this is true, where can I find information about which ones are loaded?
Hopefully you can trust your local Sony website, or try to get a sample into your hands - don't buy form US or Canada.

Quote:
- What is the quality of the dictionaries?
I can only judge from a PRS-650 and PRS-T1 and mainly the English-German one, which I consider rather good.

If you google for the dictionaries in the former models you will quite easily find a complete list and they are all premium, like oxford aso.

This might be also a reason for restricting dictionaries in the US/Canadian market. Than why to pay license fees for dictionaries never/rarely used there?
