I've been reading ebooks since I had a Palm V and when I got the ereader Oxford Dictionary I quickly became used to being able to tap a word for its definition.
I love ebooks as I am mildly dyslexic so having large print and only a few words at a time means I don't reread the same line endlessly and the whole thing works better.
Touch screen lookup would be great but screen size doesn't matter so much. 6" eink screens are a great improvement on the Palm V. I am 10 years older now and appreciate the lessened eye strain.
Does the iliad support tapping on a word to access it in the dictionary?
"Does the iliad support tapping on a word to access it in the dictionary?"
Yes. You tap the word, iRex shows the various dictionaries, which contain the respective word. You choose a dictionary by tapping it, iRex opens it. You can go back to the overview of dictionaries or the book you've read.
LOVE the multi-dictionary support.
On Pocket PCs, I've used dictionaries very often. When not reading in English (native German) on a regular basis, my English get's a bit "rusty".
