According to Pocket PC Thoughts, Mazingo discontinues its offline browsing alternative for Windows CE and Palm devices:

"Mazingo would like to thank everyone who has been involved with developing and using the Mazingo service. Regrettably, the service can no longer be offered due to the cost of content versus the revenue derived."

So far I haven't received anything from them but if you try to access their site you get tons of error messages which also indicates that Mazingo has recently stopped their service.

It's a pity to see that such content concepts didn't worked at all since I was a real heavy user of it and really enjoyed to use Mazingo on my Pocket PCs (beside the fact that synchronization sometimes took horrible long).
So the real web based alternative seems to be AvantGo only - or stand alone applications like World Off-line which is available for Pocket PCs and Smartphones.

Cheers ~ Arne
