  • all articles in one big file and one index file for title searches OR a lot of small gzipped files which get unzipped on the fly
    • the gzipped/bzipped version will only take less then a gigabyte and this way even the english wikipedia should fit on a little microsd card
    • can anyone confirm if SDHC cards are working with the neo? if not we are capped to 2GB
  • new wikipedia versions can be obtained from here [1]
  • option for varying the text size
  • settings dialog
