A Japanese Web portal operator has repackaged the content of Wikipedia so it can be searched and viewed on cell phones.
NTT Resonant, which operates the Goo Internet portal, launched the http://wpedia.mobile.goo.ne.jp/ of "Goo Wikipedia" this week. The service includes only documents from the Japanese-language version of Wikipedia. The top page shows the current five most searched for terms. As of Friday afternoon they were "Walkman," "Kat-tun" (a Japanese all-boy pop group), "Yui" (a female TV personality), "Virginia Tech University" and "Jin Akanishi" (a Japanese pop singer).
