(JoSch) I recently programmed a little Python app for being able to read *ALL* Wikipedia articles (german wikipedia) on my Nokia E70 Symbian phone. It tought me that a 4GB miniSD Card is (with a whole bunch of tweaks) enough for the (german) wikipedia and that Symbian programming really is *no* fun. So why not do this for OpenMoko instead?

what about compressing the data? probably wouldn't allow you to search, but hey. --Minime 16:21, 16 July 2007 (CEST) Compress the data in small portions - say 100K compressed - that can be decompressed in under a second. You probably want to use some sort of page-sorting-compressor - so that pages in one batch are similar - and will compress a bit better. It sounds logical that electronics based articles together will compress better than random (of course - in reality)...

Then store a search-keyword database into this data. Works well. I use 'wwwoffle' [1] to search my browsed web-pages. --Speedevil 17:10, 16 July 2007 (CEST)
