feature - question from a not-yet-owner.

just keeping my hand on the e-reader pulse. kindle2 owner for now; no expectation of being brand-loyal, however. kindle was just a more-economical way to get the features that i can't live without.

a feature i can't live without (in addition to the ability to underline/mark and annotate), is cross-title searchability. iRex doesn't say anything about this on its site. (at least, not that i could find.) can one search the entire iRex device? can one have a dictionary installed for automatic word-lookup? (i realize that this might depend upon the model.) it seems like a great device; thinking that an iRex may be my next e-reader, down the road.

Searching across the entire DR1000, no. At least not as far as I can tell.
It has dictionary facilities and it does work within the open document, though getting back to where you left off is not as intuitive as it could be, though that is probably a usage thing.

If the DR1000 could run Java applications, it may be possible to use "Puggle". This is an "offline" desktop search programme. From what I can work out, you basically index your SD card on your computer and then use a Java application to retrieve the info on a mobile device.

I put a post a little further down the forum but I guess by the lack of responses Java is not an option.
