For Portuguese, you will want the Houaiss dictionary (the unabridged one, from 2001): %ADngua_Portuguesa

This dictionary still hasn't been released with the new orthography (only abridged versions have been published).

I like the Aulete Online dictionary a lot, you can download it from their site free of charge for offline use:

If you're looking for monolingual German and Portuguese dictionaries, simply install the Kindle software for PCs, Macs or smartphones. It comes with the following free dictionaries:

French: Synapse Développement Dictionnaire français de définitions
Italian: loZingarelli Vocabolario della lingua Italiana, Dodicesima edizione
German: Duden Deutsches Universalwörterbuch, 7., überarbeitete und erweiterte Auflage
Spanish: RAE Diccionario de la lengua española, Vigésima segunda edición
Portuguese: Dicionário Priberam da Língua Portuguesa
English (US): New Oxford American English Dictionary, Second Edition
English (UK): Oxford Dictionary of English, Second Edition

(The non-English dictionaries are downloaded on demand, when you look up a word in a non-English ebook, provided it has the correct language metadata.)
