Veveo, the Boston-area start-up which has been a pioneer in bringing video search to mobile devices, has introduced a free application to search Wikipedia on the iPhone and the Google Android.  The company announced the launch of WikiTap, which can be downloaded here.

The company says it is the first Wikipedia application developed for the iPhone and Android that allows people not only to reach articles but micro-contribute multimedia on the go.  Here’s the company’s press release.  Here’s the take on the news by Don Reisinger at CNET.
