Coming out of the Symbian Foundation's developer wiki system is a handy Wikipedia widget that installs on any Symbian-powered smartphone with Web runtime (so that's most of them). Search results are all optimised for the small screen and it seems a quick and efficient way to access Wikipedia's content.

The Wikipedia Reader widget is in beta, but should work on:

1. All Series 60 3rd Edition FP2 and later phones
2. Samsung Series 60 3rd Edition FP1
3. Nokia Series 60 3rd Edition FP1 phones with latest firmware update

Known issues:

Widget has Beta support for reading Wikipedia in all available languages. This function has following issues:
1. Even though content and searching in any language is generally working, menus and messages are not localised yet
2. History and Bookmarks do not remember the language in which page was viewed ("only current language" issue)
3. In history and bookmarks views, article tit
titles may not be displayed correctly for some scripts ("unicode storage" issue)

Change Log v1.0rc2:

- Fixed search language;
- Fixed problems with apostrophe in article name.
