Airtel gives SMS access to Wikipedia

Airtel has recently launched an SMS-based service through which any Airtel subscriber can receive Wikipedia content into their cells without activating mobile internet.
To conduct a Wikipedia search, Airtel users have to send a text typing "wiki" to 5353. They will receive a 300-character message of data pulled from Wikipedia.
For example, a search for 'Dhaka' will provide the user with a text with information about the city available in Wikipedia.
A charge of Tk 2 will apply for every message. Subscribing to any mobile internet or GPRS services is not required for the service, the mobile operator said in a statement yesterday.
