The first BlackBerry dictionary to display Hebrew is now available for purchase
DALLAS (September 12, 2005) - - BEIKS LLC, the world leader in reference and language titles for mobile devices, announces the launch of its English-Hebrew Dictionary for RIM BlackBerry devices. BEIKS is the first company to enable the display and use of languages not natively supported by BlackBerries such as those based on Hebrew, Greek or Cyrillic.
The company was also the first to deliver full offline solutions for language, medical, law, business and other reference dictionaries for BlackBerry devices.
The comprehensive English to Hebrew Dictionary for BlackBerry, which features 27,000 unique English terms, is designed for the needs of English-speaking professionals challenged with communicating in colloquial Hebrew when access to a desktop translator or reference guide is either not accessible or convenient.
Based on the mobile industry standard BEIKS Dictionary Reader, the BEIKS English to Hebrew Dictionary is specially optimized for one-hand operation, minimal memory requirements and optimal access speed. Once installed the dictionary does NOT require or utilize network connection.
The BEIKS reference solutions are designed to work on the newer generation of J2ME Blackberry devices running OS 4.0 and higher. BEIKS' proprietary database format especially developed for BlackBerry devices allows all reference data to be highly compressed, making the most of RIM J2ME extensions and resulting in faster searches and less memory requirements. Other versions of the BEIKS Dictionary Reader series are available for Palm OS, Pocket PC and Linux devices, with promises for Symbian series support early next year.
The English-Hebrew dictionary retails for $19.95 and can be purchased at the BEIKS website, along with other language dictionaries.
