BEIKS Introduces First ARM-Optimized Dictionary Reader for Palm OS PDAs

DALLAS (June 26, 2003) - - Beiks LLC announces a new version of its popular BDicty Dictionary Reader for Palm OS, leveraging the power of the underlying ARM processor that drives Palm OS 5.x devices. BDicty is the first dictionary reader optimized for ARM, resulting in the fastest searches available for any Palm OS dictionary application.

BDicty works with the entire collection of dictionary lexicons available from Beiks' Web site at, including languages, phrase books for travelers, and professional and scientific terminologies, among others. Beiks' collection of dictionaries is the largest assortment of international dictionaries and phrase books available for mobile devices.

"BDicty is one of those applications that is an essential add-on, and once it is used for the first time, people wonder how they lived without it," said Bobby Kolev, president of Beiks LLC. "Our newest version offers near instantaneous search results, delivering on our promise of providing the most robust and useful Palm OS dictionary on the market."

BDicty Dictionary is available in two versions, Light and Pro. Both versions can open and work with any of the lexicon data files designed for BDicty, but the Pro version includes high-level features such as faster speed and the ability to access a BDicty dictionary from within other applications (for example, users can look up the meaning of a word in an eBook document without having to close the viewer application to launch BDicty). The Light version of BDicty is free while the Pro version costs US$10.00. Volume discounts for corporate and education customers are available.

The company plans to also release immediate updates of BDicty Dictionary for Pocket PC and Sharp Zaurus PDAs.
