Kindle 3 3G dictionary lookup on wikipedia
I would like to buy Kindle 3 3G to be able to read wikipedia articles as well. But my question is: is it possible to use dictionary on wikipedia pages? Can I read wikipedia and check the words that I am not familiar with at the same time?
Thank you very much

Not so far as I can tell. There's no cursor to move between words like there is in a normal document, so you can't select items to look up.

As carl said, no, not within the browser.
I have ereadups and instapaper email wiki pages I like a lot straight to my Kindle as mobi files.
If you do that, then the dictionary and all other highlighting/notes/dictionary look-ups work fine.
