The application requires at least 700kB of free memory in order to operate normally. It provides complete support for expansion cards (CF, SD, MMC), meaning that parts or the whole application can be installed on and operate normally from an expansion card.
Generally, the drug reference guide is available on any platform that BEIKS Dictionary Reader supports (including Windows Mobile and BlackBerry) and the general product requirements are the ones that BEIKS Dictionary Reader presents.
The product is brought to you in joined effort between MedicineNet and BEIKS, two leading companies in the fields of medical reference content and mobile reference applications respectively.
It consists of two parts: the MedicineNet's Common Medications database itself and BEIKS Dictionary Reader application, a common platform for mobile reference content.
Each of those two components can be available separately and/or updated separately over the life of the product and you may want to periodically check for upgrades with the vendor of your choice.
