I'll explain.

If I'm reading in Cyrillic Russian and "click" a word (or whatever you do do) will the dictionary just show me the definition in English? And vice versa.

From reading, I'm pretty clear Jetbook translates from English to Russian WHILE reading. In other words, like the Kindle, you continue to read and the dictionary is integrated (no need to leave the reading, open a dictionary, search for the word, and return back to your reading.) But, I'm not clear it works in reverse: read Russian and get English definition without leaving your "what you are reading".

Please let me know soon, as I'm dying to buy one NOW!!
yes, jetBook and jetBook-Lite have English->Russian and Russian->English dictionaries. You can highlight any word and get translation in popup window.
It has very large vocabulary for Russian languages and many synonyms.
