MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. Sept 8, 2004 — PocketSensei announced today the release of version 1.0 of the Nexus English Super Dictionary for Palm Powered handhelds and smartphones. Nexus represents the most in-depth and full-featured dictionary ever developed for the Palm OS platform.
Nexus comes standard with integrated thesaurus, rhyming dictionary, crossword search and custom study lists. Nexus also supports the ability to attach JPEG illustrations to word definitions.
With a patented compression and search engine, Nexus achieves unprecedented memory efficiency and retrieval speeds. The basic dictionary sports over 160,000 entries and with DEX (Dictionary Expansion Library) the number of words exceeds one half million — the most of any handheld dictionary. PocketSensei has taken the entire contents of Princeton’s WordNet dictionary and added thousands of contemporary word definitions compiled by a team of Stanford and Northwestern linguists.
With bi-monthly updates, Nexus will be the first dictionary to add words almost as soon as they enter the popular lexicon. From bling-bling to metrosexual to words yet to be coined, PocketSensei has assembled a team of word researchers to continuously identify new words and append them to the Nexus database.
“Nexus sets a the standard with the most exhaustive, contemporary and stylish dictionary ever made for handheld devices,” said president Bohm S. Kim. “Students, teachers, writers, researchers and English speakers everywhere are going to find this to be the one reference tool they can\’t live without. Nexus is the only dictionary to combine rhyming, thesaurus, antonym, homonym, and crossword functions into a single product. Being able to add illustrations just makes it that much more functional and fun.”
