Our big device deserves something bigger than those puny pocket encyclopedias and dictionaries

Found a dump of Wikipedia (dumped on May 28 2009) in .mdx format.

Can be read with Mdict (freeware just search the net)

Download the wikipedia files (part by part) or by torrent

total file size: 2Gb++

No images though (some entries have links to images which needs internet connection)

Sample entries

Add an option for "maybe" because it could be useful for not very volatile information, otherwise it will get stale quite quickly. Sorry for not being as enthusiastic as you obviously are.
