Wikipedia articles have been put on a CD and within 10 days, there have already been 4390 downloads. Guess what would happen if all of the Malayalam Wikipedia would be available in this way..
That would become possible when the Malayalam content would be available for the Wikireader. The Wikireader people are testing with content in other languages. This does include support for the Greek and the Cyrillic script.
It would be really great if the Wikireader is also able to support the Indic languages, it is a big market and Internet access is not everywhere a given.
