Wikipedia Launches Mobile Version

Those seeking information can now have it without spending too many Kbs by accessing the just launched Wikipedia mobile site.

Thats correct! Even though we've had several alternatives to access Wikipedia pages while on the move, there was nothing official from the site itself. But this does not hold true anymore! Wikipedia mobile is now live and can be accessed at mobile.wikipedia.org.

The usual Wikipedia start page has been replaced by a search page where you can query your entries. There is no use of graphics except for the Wikipedia logo - this is seen as an attempt ensure that the site is not very heavy and loads quickly and is optimised even for the most basic of phones with a WAP browser.
