Hi I am thinking of buying an Amazon Kindle as an E-Reader but i have a few questions about functionalities as i have not had the chance to test a live one.
Is there the option to install a dictionary app or is one installed so that when I am reading a book and want to lookup a word i can click on the word i want to define and it gives me the definitions for it without having to close the book i am reading?
One of the main reason's i am looking at the Kindle vs other readers is because the screen looks very matte. I stare at a computer all day and work and the lights from the computer screen are hard on the eyes. But the kindle screen from what i can determine looking at the video almost looks like you are looking at a matte piece of paper. Hence it would not be hard on the eyes. Can anyone confirm this?
Thanks in advance for the help.

I can't answer about the Kindle device, since I don't own one myself. But I will offer some advice about buying one; if you own a Blackberry or iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad, there is a Kindle app for these devices, so don't waste your money. There is also a Kindle app for Windows and Mac OS X, if you prefer that.
The number of Kindle devices being sold is going down, because of the fact that you can read Kindle books for free on a Blackberry and iPhone.
