Question Lingvo dictionaries, annotation exporting and ad-hoc WiFi on 602/902

A friend of me has asked me to recommend an ebook (this is what I call "ereader"s) capable of handling PDFs for academic work that can also do some light web surfing. Right now, I'm doubting between the Kindle DXG and the Pocketbook 902. After watching a few videos, reading the Russian review (thanks Google Translate!), and searching through this subforum, I still have a few queries I hope someone can help me with.

Yes, I am aware that there is practically no one with the PB 602/902, since shipping is only starting, but since my first two questions also apply to the PB 360, maybe someone with this ebook can help me out?
  • What dictionaries are included in the 602/902? I know they are supposed to be "ABBY Lingvo" dictionaries, but I am not sure what this means. Are they really Oxford dictionaries? Which language combinations are included?
  • How does the PDF highlighting / annotation feature work in the 602/902? Kindle 3 saves all highlighting / annotation from a document in its own list to be read from the ebook and also exports highlighted text / annotated text to a .txt file, marking its location, to be read from a PC. Does the 602/902 do something similar?
  • As I understand it from mtravellerh and Forkosigan's replies here, the 602/902 do not support WiFi in ad-hoc mode. Is this correct? Many smartphones can do tethering via WiFi, but Bluetooth is not so common.

Thanks!

I'll answer myself here. I finally decided to ask Pocketgoods.de and got this back from them:

Ich habe gerade mir die W÷rterbŘcher angeschaut. Es sind sehr viele Abbyy Lingvo W÷rterbŘcher (79). Auch Oxford Dictionaries sind dabei (EN-ES,EN-EN,DE-EN, EN-DE, EN-FR,EN-FR, EN-IT, IT-EN)

Tethering habe ich mit meinem HC Desire ausprobiert - es geht
So, those are the language combinations of the Oxford dictionaries and mobile tethering does work.
