After being in what the company calls “alpha-beta-development-maybe-kind-live mode”, user-edited online encyclopedia Wikipedia’s mobile site has officially launched, complete with support for iPhone, Kindle, Android and Palm Pre devices, redirecting these devices to the new mobile page by default.
The mobile site at mobile.wikipedia.org was recently moved to a new server and, so far, around 18,000,000 pages have been served.
From now on, whenever you open a Wikipedia link on any of the above devices, you’ll automatically be redirected to the mobile version. To disable default redirects, click the “view this page on main Wikipedia” link. For the moment, the mobile site only fully supports English and German, but other translations are in the works.
Hit up the full post from Wikimedia (the company responsible for the software that runs Wikipedia) for the complete launch details, then let us know what you think about the improvements and how they stack up against other Wikipedia mobile tools like previously mentioned Wikipanion.
