Honestly, electronic dictionaries are very good with that.  I mean, in
terms of highlighting a word and jumping to a dictionary.  I hope they
are still being made -- nothing says "Serious learner of Japanese (or
English)" than carrying one of those around or having one opened up in
the library / coffee shop!  :-)

Without the jump feature and as just a dictionary, I found ColorDict
to be useful.

Has your friend tried installing Firefox on her phone?  I wonder if
Add-ons such as Rikaichan work on the phone version of FIrefox?
