I recently picked up a Smartphone and, keen to surf the web one small page at a time, I added GPRS to my mobile plan. It didn’t take me long to figure out that the greater web was just so much ‘dog food’ as far as mobile browsing went: you could eat it if you were hungry enough, but it wasn’t really what I’d call fit for human consumption.

Hoping to redress the balance in a small way, I’ve put together a slimmed down, XHTML version of the Wikipedia. You can find it at: http://wapipedia.org

As a newcomer to the mobile browsing world I’ve only just started thinking about interface issues, so I'm after some feedback here. If you have any suggestions please send them to me at [email protected]

thank you - i'm gonna find this very useful indeed.
i'm told there's also an offline version of wikipedia for pdas, but i never had the storage space for it.

yeah, there's a version put out by Tomeraider, but it's an older snapshot (not so much data), and you can only see 1 out of every five entries unless you buy the Tomeraider product - it was a bit of a washout IMO
