ereader dictionary integration

Hi, I'm looking for an ereader that allows you to select a word off the page and the definition shows up at the bottom screen of the ereader (assuming theres two screens: 1) the reading screen and 2) the navigation screen). So basically a ereader that shows the definition on the navigation screen instead of having to exit what your reading and moving to a page that shows the definition. Thanks!

The Kobo devices will do that. The definition is shown in a pop-up that covers part of the text, but not the selected word.

I think this is pretty standard implementation on most of the current readers (can't say positively since I only have Kobo). The Kobo also does give you the option of entering a word look up (rather than only having a picking it on the page option).
