Smartphone version of Wikipedia

Wapipedia is a wireless application protocol (WAP) formatted site that accesses Wikipedia.

His creator, Peter Shanks, explains why he created it: "I recently picked up a Smartphone and, keen to surf the web one small page at a time, I added GPRS to my mobile plan. It didn't take me long to figure out that the greater web was just so much ‘dog food' as far as mobile browsing went: you could eat it if you were hungry enough, but it wasn't really what I'd call fit for human consumption."
