It would be usefull to access an offline version of wikipedia (since there are people who do not want to pay for mobile internet) on the OpenMoko Platform. Here is a little tweak I did with the Stylus Demo by Mickey. Please submit more feature ideas!

Feature Ideas

  • show articles depending on location (GPS)
  • list with
    • recently viewed articles
    • most viewed articles
  • search articles "as you type"
  • it will have no pictures - not enough room on any storage media
  • tex forumlas could be generated with a local LaTeX install but such may be too big for the phone
  • all wikipedia versions except the english one will fit on a 4GB SDCard (tested with the second largest wikipedia (german))
  • 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
    • set article location
  • forward/back buttons
  • bookmarks

Currently Implemented

  • UTF-8 capable article viewer
  • several empty user controls
  • read bzip2 compressed articles
