Is that Wikipedia in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

OpenMoko offline reader puts Wikipedia in your pocket – Ars Technica

Back in the day, I loaded the entire text contents of Wikipedia (which at the time could fit in a 1GB SQL dump file on an SD card) into HanDBase on my old iPAQ Pocket PC, just so I could walk around and say that I had the entire contents of Wikipedia in my pocket. That pickup line didn’t work then, and I doubt it will work now.

Today, I already have one of these. It’s called my iPhone. If I’m somewhere I don’t have connectivity, I have bigger problems than not being able to get to Wikipedia. I need connectivity like I need air! :-)
