    Well theres a guide out there that shows you how to install the entire wiki archives onto your ipod, http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-install-wikipedia-on-your-ipod/

    My question is if its possible to do the same with the ipod touch, Im sure its possible. Maybe someone could create a custom app to run the wikipedia archive? Would be an amazing tool too have.

    And yes i do know the obvious, Just use the wifi to goto wikipedia.com and search there but not everyone has wifi, Also wifi isnt availible everywhere =]

    I wouldn't think so.

    They managed to gather the entire definitions of over 170,000 english words in just over 20MB within the weDict application (DECT Dictionary)..

    1.7GB seems just about right for Wikipedia as an entity.
