Knovel, the collection of engineering and technical handbooks and manuals, has released an app for Android and iOS. My Knovel to Go allows you to save documents from the Knovel database to be read at a later time on your tablet.
How it works:
Once you are logged into your My Knovel account, search for content. Save any items you might wish to read later to your My Knovel account. These will be available in your My Knovel to Go App for later use.
Wolfram|Alpha isn't exactly an encyclopedia, and it isn't exactly a search engine. The brainchild of Stephen Wolfram, this utility allows you to compute answers from information gleaned from the web. It is especially useful for measures and conversions, mathematics and computing, and numberic sequences such as population, stock prices, or exchange rates over time.
Wolfram|Alpha is free and you can find the mobile site at http://m.wolframalpha.com/. Definitely bookmark-worthy!
