New versions of popular Merriam-Webster dictionaries for BlackBerry

New versions of popular Merriam-Webster dictionaries for BlackBerry are now available from Paragon Software Group. Merriam-Webster is America's foremost publisher of language-related reference works and publishes a diverse array of print products. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary, Merriam-Webster’s Pocket Dictionary and Merriam-Webster’s Medical Dictionary by Paragon Software Group now include support for BlackBerry Storm and BlackBerry Torch devices. We’re also pleased to mention that our Merriam-Webster’s Third New International Dictionary Unabridged for BlackBerry was a Regional Selections Winner in the 2010 BlackBerry Partners Fund Super Apps Developer Challenge. The full line of Merriam-Webster dictionaries can be found at our site, retailing for $14.95 to $59.95 (dependent on title).

Dictionary making at Merriam-Webster has always been an ongoing process. Even as the 1859 edition was being published, editorial work on a completely new edition was under way. Endorsing this principle, several new Merriam-Webster dictionaries will be available from Paragon Software Group throughout the coming year. Be sure to join our social channels or subscribe to the Penreader blog’s RSS feed to get the latest on our Merriam-Webster dictionary line!
