The 20,000 wikireaders could be picked up in a bankruptcy sale and shipped to wiki chapters around the globe as a recruitment drive. Geraldshields11 (talk) 01:51, 18 April 2014 (UTC)


I found this review on Amavon. One suggestion applys to First World users.

<block quote/> 4) You guys know that for $9 bucks you can get the very same thing on your phone and you won't have to spend 60 bucks and carry around a separate device, right? Ok. Just checking. Its called wikipock - google it. Why didn't I do this you ask? Because the cost of buying the wikireader device, was actually cheaper then buying the app and the increased SD storage card I would need to hold all the data on my phone. But if you already have a 16GB sd card in your phone, you should be good to go. <block quote>

Hope this helps. Geraldshields11 (talk) 12:04, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
