Yes, you can charge it via USB as well. I love my PB 360, very happy with it. As to the built-in language functions and dictionaries: there should be something pre-installed, and there are some others available, both free and commercial.

The wall charger that it ships with is a USB to wall adapter. I charge my 360 either connected via USB to my laptop, or plugged into the wall with my iPhone USB charger. It works perfectly fine and I wouldn't spend the extra $20 for the included charger.

If you don't have an iPhone or any other USB to wall charger, you can probably pick one up for cheaper than $20 locally.

Having said that, I'm in Australia and the wall charger was not an option for my country. Had it been, I might very well have bought it, not knowing that the iPhone charger would have done the same thing

And USB port will do.
PC, game console, DVD player, whatever.
If it has a USB port, it'll work. (the U in USB is for Universal.)
In the US, generic USB power adapters for wall or car sockets run $6-10.

(Unless they're branded for iPod use in which case you can double the price. )

From memory it doesn't come with an en-en dictionary, but if you search this forum you'll find links to good dictionaries and they are very easy to use while reading. I've the the Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary and a couple of others, all found through links here.

I like the Merriam Webster's Collegiate en-en dictionary. I don't care for the Webster's 1913.
