NEW YORK, July 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing its 164-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces The Point And Click Dictionary, a pocket-sized scanner that instantly looks up and displays word definitions.

The device slides easily over reading material, its integrated flip-up camera scans any word with the touch of a button, and definitions are instantaneously displayed on its screen.

"The Point And Click Dictionary eliminates the hassle of thumbing through bulky dictionaries or navigating a computer to define words while reading," explained Hammacher Schlemmer's General Manager Fred Berns.

The scanner has a 2.4" color LCD with 320 x 240 resolution that clearly displays definitions, comprehensive etymologies, and related word forms. It also provides audible word pronunciations through its built-in speaker.

Smaller than a smartphone, the portable scanner provides 500,000 definitions from the Collins English Dictionary and offers translations to and from French, Italian, Spanish, and German using the award-winning Collins foreign language dictionaries. Users can navigate the device via the touchscreen or the included stylus, it has an integrated MP3 player, voice recorder, and picture viewer, and it recharges in two hours.

The Point And Click Dictionary is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $279.95. For more information about this product, please visit http://www.hammacher.com/81920 or contact Trish Hammond at (847) 581-8987 or via e-mail at pr@hammacher.com .
