I think this might be a legal issue- maybe oxford wanted their free dictionary only usable as an instant lookup service- so they killed the whole index functionality of dictionaries alltogether
Hi Stehk,

I currently have an ipad and as you know you can not change the default dictionary. I was wondering if you can change the default dictionary on kindle for android. I know new kindle for android has instant lookup(oxford dictionary). but were you able to change it?

Please tell me if you have tried it because I want to read spanish books and I have converted my mobipocket dictionaries to .azw and they can be used on original kindle devices but I was wondering if you can use them on kindle for android.
