Wikipedia goes mobile

You may have thought that http://wapedia.mobi/en/ was Wikipedia’s true and final mobile web site, but you’re quite wrong. Because just recently, the folks behind this human-powered, free encyclopedia have announced their official mobile site, which can be found on http://mobile.wikipedia.org/.

To access Wikipedia’s mobile web site, a user simply has to grab their mobile phone, open the web browser, and go to http://mobile.wikipedia.org/. This mobile site offers a very simply user interface, which is perfect for mobile devices.

At the same time, this mobile version of Wikipedia is also available in several different languages. Lastly, there’s a link to a feature called Spoken Wikipedia on the mobile site’s homepage, which plays back recorded versions of articles.
