iLiad Firmware 2.10.2 released

Thanks to TheGreatGonzo for pointing this out.

From the Release Notes

Quote:
What's new in the software release 2.10.2?
  • 2.1 Mobipocket Dictionary Support The Mobipocket Viewer on the iLiad now allows you to open and search in Mobipocket dictionaries and lookup words directly from your Mobipocket books.
    Please see the updated Mobipocket User Manual for details.
  • 2.2 Battery Life Resolved a problem with some new iLiads that have only 5 hours of battery life. Affected devices will now behave according to spec again.
For those looking for some free Mobipocked formatted dictionaries, I've created some here and here.

Making a dictionary is pretty complicated. You'll need Mobipocket's creator software: http://www.mobipocket.com/en/Downloa...ilsCreator.asp

Here are a few links that helped me created the two dictionaries that I've setup.

Maybe not quite ... but mine's been on for over five hours now, and the battery indicator is only a quarter down; I'd say that looks pretty good.

I had my iLiad on for 7 hours (sitting on a PDF page), with maybe 2 hours of reading, and it had about 1/3 of the battery left. That's much better than it had been.

I keep reading about this new search function in the Mobipocket reader but have never found out how to get it to work. Am I doing omethign wrong? Do I need a book to be formatted as a dictionary for it to work?
