WikiPock is a mobile software that puts all the Wiki Encyclopedia on your mobile phone via a storage card (of size 4GB). The best part is that you don’t need an internet connection to access it.
However, it doesn’t come for free. The price starts at $9.99 if you have your own storage card. If you want WikiPock to send you the program on a 4GB storage card, it will cost $20.

However, I am not sure how many people would be interested in paying for a copy of Wikipedia for mobiles, when you can get the same on the Web for free. For those who don’t mind the money factor, I think this service can be a useful one.
