WordPress.com blogs now use mobile themes automatically

October 22, 2009 | No Comments Yet

WPTouch WordPress Mobile Edition

WordPress.com users can now serve mobile versions of their blogs thanks to modified version of WPtouch and WordPress Mobile Edition. People with more capable mobile browsers, such as iPhones and Android-based phones will use the first theme, while other mobile devices will use the second theme.

Mobile visitors greeted by WPtouch will get easy access to posts, pages, and archives. They’ll get fancy AJAX commenting and post loading. If you are using a custom header image, it will be scaled to size and displayed at the top of your blog. When viewing your blog on other phones, the focus will be on loading the blog quickly while displaying the important information about your content.

More details about the mobile themes here.
