best foreign language & dictionary options?
I am a lifelong student of the French language. I would be very interested in an eBook reader if there were a large number of French books available for it, and it had a strong dictionary feature. Ideally, I would like to be able, while reading a French text, to touch any word (with my finger or perhaps a stylus) and have either an English translation of the word, or a definition in French, pop up. Even better would be to have a choice of a number of dictionaries, both French -> English and French -> French.
Does anyone know if such a reader exists? Or the one that may be closest to offering these features?

Joe, I can't answer the specifics of your question. But Ectaco is in the electronic dictionary business, and I suggest you go to their website and look at their eBook reader the jetBook.

The other alternative is devices supporting non-commercial dictionaries. The PocketBooks (360, 301, and more coming) allow you to add your own dictionaries and there is already a collection of public domain dictionaries to choose from.
I don't know for sure that any of these do exactly what you want. You might ask in the Forum Français, particularly about the Gen3.
