Wikipedia on Amazon Kindle
I particularly like the Kindle Paper White, have an application where you can read Wikipedia with the Kindle format, in case Amazon does not collaborate, I would work with you to create your own Wikipedia tablet (Wikitablet) with electronic ink technology.

Who are the people you want to introduce Wikipedia to?[edit]

Try to be as specific as possible about this group.
All users in general.

In what languages do they search for information, online or otherwise?[edit]

Spanish and English

In what ways does this group communicate with each other?[edit]

This can include services and apps in social media, mailing lists, physical spaces like conferences or lectures, or at specific institutions like at a library.
Facebook, Whatsapp

What are some reasons this group would use Wikipedia? How would they benefit from it, or what would they find useful?[edit]

Think about what they would be interested in reading and learning about; does Wikipedia provide better access to information this group cares about?
It would definitely be more relaxing to read from electronic ink and not from a color screen.
