Press Release: The Point And Click Dictionary

The Point And Click Dictionary eliminates the hassle of thumbing through bulky dictionaries or navigating a computer to define words while reading,” explained Hammacher Schlemmer’s General Manager Fred Berns.

The scanner has a 2.4″ color LCD with 320 x 240 resolution that clearly displays definitions, comprehensive etymologies, and related word forms. It also provides audible word pronunciations through its built-in speaker.

Smaller than a smartphone, the portable scanner provides 500,000 definitions from the Collins English Dictionary and offers translations to and from French, Italian, Spanish, and German using the award-winning Collins foreign language dictionaries. Users can navigate the device via the touchscreen or the included stylus, it has an integrated MP3 player, voice recorder, and picture viewer, and it recharges in two hours.
