I am looking for an e-book reader that comes with a dictionary. If I select a word I want to get the meaning pop up, and it must be ordered by relevancy based on the context in which the word appears. Anything out there like that?

EDIT: The matrix below is something that I am looking for. Only issue is that it list Devices, rather than software. PC Software, something that is cross platform and works on Linux would also be great. I have looked as some Firefox plug-ins that does dictionary lookups, and have tried converting e-books into HTML and reading through the web browser. The user experience was terrible, and it was a pain.

Looking for PC software, not devices. Will update appropriately. – Ravi Chhabra Jun 23 '10 at 17:17
Retagged the question to make it clearer at a glance that this is a software question. – Emory Bell Jun 23 '10 at 17:48
