    I know it must be possible because it was available on the mini and early generation iPods. Can someone devolope an application to read and search through the free to download 1.7GB Wikipedia file? It would be incredibly useful. I would love to hear everyone's thoughts on this idea.

    I third that suggestion. Wikipedia is my best friend. I would have no problem dedicating a few gigs to be able to have it everywhere with me. It doesn't have to update or anything, which I'm pretty sure was something people said would make a Wikipedia.app not possible last time this idea came up....just a recent dump would be amazing.

    alright, so can we get a developer to make an application to read those files with a search box using the built in keyboard? Or could someone create a file compatible with the weDict application?
