wiki reader, wiki readers digest
WikiReader is a project to deliver an offline, text-only version of Wikipedia on a mobile device The project is sponsored by Openmoko and its source code has been released

The project debuted an offline portable reader for Wikipedia in October 2009 Updates in multiple languages are available online; Wikireader versions of the English Wikipedia, Wiktionary, Wikiquote and Project Gutenberg can be installed together on a user-supplied 16 GB Micro SDHC Memory Card Unlike Wikipedia itself, the device features parental controls

The device can also run programs written in Forth; a simple calculator program is included

In late 2014, the WikiReader website and project itself were shut down and abandoned for unknown reasons Their website now redirects to the GitHub page that contains the WikiReader source code Existing WikiReaders no longer receive updates to their database Devices and homegrown updates are only available from the secondary markets
