No. WordWise requires a Kindle Language Layer database (kll.en.en.klld) that Amazon introduced with the 5.6.x firmware, which is not available for PW1 Kindles.
I.e., unless Amazon releases another PW1 update you're out of luck.

I think it's hopeless with it, Amazon always forget old models while lastest models released.. K3\4\Ts never get firmware updating after Amazon announced paperwhite, now it comes to pw1.:/

You have a very short memory. Both the Kindle Touch and the Kindle 3 received significant firmware upgrades after the release of the PW.

It is, however, true that Amazon typically only provides one or two significant firmware upgrades for devices that have already been surpassed by multiple new models -- the PW1 and Touch are both far enough in the past that you can be quite confident Amazon will no longer backport new features to these old models.

@gebederry: BTW, Amazon added Word Wise to the latest version of the Android Kindle app (4.11.0). However, it's of limited value, since it won't work with side-loaded books.

I was also wondering and asked on Kindle support chat. The response I got is as follows:

04:33 AM PDT Shiela: I've checked on this and found that at this time Word Wise is not available yet on the 1st generation Kindle Paperwhite and we are not sure when it will be going to be available. No worries, I've successfully forwarded this to our Kindle Team so they can check on it. Who knows, this may be included on the next software update.
04:34 AM PDT Krzysiek: Ok, great :). And do you maybe know when next update is planned?
04:35 AM PDT Shiela: We don't have that information yet. Here is what I can do though, I can make a personal follow up on this and once the next software update is available and Word Wise is included on it, I will let you know. Alright? (...)
So there's still hope :)
