Wikipedia, the popular on-line encyclopaedia has been converted into an MDX file format and can now be viewed on your Handheld PC using MDict by Octopus Studios.

This version of Wikipedia 1.0 is provided as ‘freeware' and last updated in June of 2006, but as is the case with the modus operandi of Wikipedia many entries date back to 2003, but in any event, it still provides users a wealth of information right their your Handheld PC.

The Wikipedia 1.0 MDX file is a text only version and has two basic requirements.
  • The MDX file requires approximately 162 megabytes of storage space
  • A copy of MDict by Octopus Studio's must be installed on your Handheld PC in order to view the content of the file
Libraries for other MDict compatible repositories are also available to download from the airfagev site.
