Wikipedia For Mobile Devices
Users of Pocket PCs, Smartphones and Java-enabled mobile phones running web browsers can now access a lightweight version of the Wikipedia on-line encyclopaedia.

New Zealand-based company Instinct has created a mobile version of Wikipedia for mobile devices, currently available as a beta website.

With over 1,025,291 entries itís got pretty much everything users could want to know about, from mercantilism to New Zealand history to Fraggle Rock.

The developer says however that people shouldn't start quoting Wikipedia as the source of all truth though, since the entries are contributed by individuals in the community and arenít checked by professionals before theyíre published.
