Wikipedia To Deliver Articles Via SMS

Wikipedia is starting to tackle a problem many content providers struggle with–reaching feature phone users on-the-go.

We’ve seen many services get creative about enabling rich mobile experiences on feature phones. For some more examples, take a look at M-Pesa’s mobile payments or Saya’s location based services.
