Electronic Dictionaries/Translators

What are some of the best hand-held electronic dictionaries out there? I'm tired of having to be distracted from reading a novel in spanish by having to look up a word in the dictionary. I usually get distracted for a few minutes. I can get by reading the whole chapter, but I rarely go back to look up words I didn't know. I think it would be easier just to quickly type them in, find out the definition, and continue reading.

So I am looking to buy one that would be easy to travel with, offers a large vocabulary, and is possibly able to be used with several languages. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

Ok, Firstly I want to give you welcome, and it refer to the dictionary, in the website there are a lot online dictionaries, I don't know that kind of dictionary there are in the U.S.A, because I'm living on Mexico, and really I don't use hand dictionary, because I feel that it is not fast, I give you a counsel, you must to find some kind of dictionary online, and you must print the words that you need in the moment.

Welcome David. I don't have any personal experience with electronic translators. If you are at home, you could just use your computer and search the tomisimo dictionary.

This $40 dictionary on Amazon has very good reviews

I think it's best to use an online dictionary (like here!) I have an electronic dictionary, but it doesn't work.
