Asian-English Dictionaries for New Pocketbooks

I found this article saying that the new series of Pocketbook devices will be bundled with Abby Linvo dictionaries.

http://www.prnewswire.com/news-relea...108925774.html

It says that 602,902,603,903 and IQ will be equipped with 44 dictionaries (English and other Europeans) from the beginning.

Unfortunately, my favorite languages are asians. (korean, Japanese, and Chinese...) The article says that people can add other dictionaries by purchasing from the BookLand site. But I cannot find any such English-Asian (or Asian-English) dictionaries. Among them, Korean is the most important one to me. Does anyone know about how to purchase or install these dictionaries to the new pocketbook readers? (or where can i find them?)

I'm with you, a Korean dictionary would be great for me. If you find one, please post it here.

The article specifies that New Pocketbooks will be equipped with Abbyy Lingvo dictionaries and users can purchase addtional premium dictionaries from "www.bookland.net"...

This is weird... Bookland.net is still beta status and is too inconvient to explore. I could not find any additional abbyy lingvo dictionaries there.

So, is the press wrong? I guess Pocketbook also promoted their products based on same staement, Abbyy Lingvo and additional dictionaries on Bookland.net.

Someone needs to clarify whether I can add asian related dictionaries and where they are. Maybe I need to contact Abbyy Lingvo people.

I asked Abbyy and they told me at this moment Chinese-** dictionaries are not supported in Lingvo. They may develop an app but are not sure when.
