Potential Kindle buyers can easily test the quality of the default monolingual Kindle dictionaries by installing any of the free Kindle apps, which will all download the monolingual dictionaries for all officially supported languages (UK/US English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese) on demand.
Unfortunately, there's no PocketBook app for PCs or smartphones, which makes it difficult to compare the dictionary functionality.
Since you have a PocketBook, why don't you pick some rare words and look them up both on your PocketBook and with the Kindle app?
Take for example, "palisade," which seems to be missing in some Oxford English dictionaries or "to cotton on," which is also missing in some dictionaries.
(Feel free to test definitions for other languages.)
