Do you need to? I'm sure she buys stuff (clothes, perhaps?) that aren't strictly necessary, either.

As a friend of mine used to explain (re: PC upgrades), the issue isn't paying for the new toy but rather the "mandatory piano accessory".

Strong reason but not strong enough.

You wouldn’t believe but she doesn't. That's why the justification.

I am looking forward to your mini-review ;-).
I am tempted myself, but I will wait for the first reviews of their inkPhone that they released today.

Well, since it is essentially an eink android tablet it has whatever dictionaries the user-installed apps support. Add the Kindle reader app, get the Kindle dictiinaries--add Kobo, get theirs...

You can also add some of the dictionary apps and whatever book apps are usable with eink grayscale and refresh rates.

The price sounds about right for what it offers.
Didn't think of using Kindle app at all, but now that you mentioned it, I ordered it and will try it. With shipping to India 184€

I depends on where you live. Sometimes climate or society standards make clothes necessary. It's rather unfortunate.

Apparently Onyx is also making a 9.7 inch eInk Android table, due for production this month but apparently not intended for the consumer market. There's a glimpse of it on Youtube in this brief review of the Boox T68 (starting at 1:35):

The Onyx Boox M96 is already for sale at http://ereader-store.de/en/onyx-boox...m96-black.html

There is a discussion about it in https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=227304

The Kindle app runs nicely on my hacked Sony T1. (Except on dec 25)
And that is android 2.x so I had to use an older app.

On a 4.x platform it should shine...
