The world’s first “Smart Dictionary”, the ER-9000 allows you to jump directly to the correct senses between Dictionary and Thesaurus entries. This “intelligent” ability to understand the specific nuances and meanings of words saves endless thumbing through paper dictionaries and it will be a godsend for language students. For example, if you want to “get on like a house on fire” the correct synonym set will be found under “hit it off” in the Thesaurus (not “house”). It also contains many new solvers to help you with word games: crossword, anagram, word viewer, word maker, phrase search, definition search, encyclopedic search, abbreviation search and more. An elegant design with metal case, large clear screen with 3 font sizes, and large, easy to operate keys! So simple to use, all you have to do to start it is press the desired function key! Ideal for lovers of the English language, from academics to word game players.

May not be for everyone, but for anyone looking for one of these it's the best price anywhere by some margin - best price anywhere else (including Amazon and eBay) is about £120. Only a few left at this price.

No problem - delighted to find that there's at least one person on HUKD with the intellect to appreciate what a bargain this really is to anyone with a genuine interest in the English language.

Let's just leave the others to concentrate on the 10p Tesco chocolate bar deals, shall we? X)

If I remember correctly if you buy the Archos G9 from QVC you get most of this stuff in App form as part of the bundle (And a honeycomb tablet).

Why is it so good (I understand the price is good hence its hot) is it that much better as a dictionary than the one on the kindle. (I do buy into the do one thing and do it well methodology).

(I have dead tree versions of everything other than Oxford Dictionary of Modern Slang / Britannica).

I would love another one as mine got broke
