DALLAS (February 05, 2010) - - BEIKS LLC, the world leader in reference and language titles for mobile devices, announces support of its popular BEIKS Dictionary reference platform for Google's Android devices.
BEIKS Dictionary Reader is the award-winning handheld dictionary reader that enables users to view reference materials including bilingual and monolingual dictionaries, as well as biblical, professional medical and legal reference works, such as the award-winning BEIKS Medical Dictionary and MedicineNet’s Medications Guide & Pocket Medical Encyclopedia.
