The Moby Dick also has Wifi, Bluetooth, and it comes with 8GB internal storage and a microSD card slot. It’s equipped to work with a smartcover, which will be sold separately.
In terms of software, the Moby Dick comes with Google Play and the usual basic Android apps as well as an ABBYY Russian-English dictionary.
