Its great to read books in English and look up word definitions as you go, on your kindle. Can we do this in Mandarin. Mandarin font and Mandarin dictionary? I think all we can do is read Mandarin on Kindle software
. Not sure about dictionary. I mean the idea is to use this as a learning tool. http://www.webpronews.com/kindle-paperw ... le-2012-10
Wow the paperwhite is only 8480 JPY = $95 at this writing. Not sure if that would need to be or can be hacked over to English. If it can support Japanese font can it theoretically support Mandarin font?
OK now I read this http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-575589 ... e-readers/
And a friend telle me "It reads Chinese just fine. The PaperWhite has a Chinese dictionary but it is Simplified Chinese. I have a couple of Chinese documents on my Kindle which it reads fine. You do have to make sure that the language tag is set correctly if you convert your own."

Duokan is alternative OS for the Kindle developed by a Chinese team. It's also available on Kindle2/Kindle DX/Kindle DXG. It's free for non-commercial use. It doesn't overwrite the official system in Kindle, but works as a secondary system. After installation, there's a boot menu where you can select from Duokan or the official system by pressing 1 or 2 ("Q" and "W" on a Kindle 3). Duokan improves on the compatiblity with Chinese characters of the K3, along other key features. It has a new PDF reader which provides full-screen reading, cropping the white margin and better support of two/four-column papers.
