  • I vote Windoes and iPhones. 

    How many devices can be covered with XPS or PDF formatted exports of Wiki topics?

    I'm not an American adult but I also like to read news on my HTC HD2. But I personally doubt that Wiki is the type of site I'd like to read when on mobile. But who knows...

  • Currently the wiki displays pretty nicely on the iPhone browser, as long as you don't hit an article that's got some gigantic image in it.

    Should we consider a dedicated application that caches wiki content for offline viewing on mobile devices? I wouldn't classify this as a "must have" item personally, but there's a few that have appeared on the iPhone app store and appear to be popular.

    If we're just talking exporting articles to a format that readers on the phones can use, why not go with EPub format?  It's an open format and there appear to be a few readers for it in the mobile space.
