Hey,

Was recently viewing my blog on my blackberry, and it doesn't show up great. Any plans to have the blog pages more mobile friendly?

There are indeed, though I'm not sure Blackberry will be the main platform we look at developing for (it's pretty well documented which direction that ship is headed...). Most likely a design/layout that plays nice in a certain size, assuming the browser supports modern standards. Newer blackberries should support that, but we probably won't be testing in depth on 100+ different mobiles :)

Would you prefer it defaults to this layout if viewed on a mobile, or prefer the blog owner can choose which layout to show to mobile users. There's something to be said for both, so thought I'd put the question out there.

I would prefer it defaults to mobile view when viewed on a mobile device. Think it is easier for the basic blog user - rather than having them have to pick different templates. I suppose we could have the option for more advanced users to choose layout depending on device, but we should make it simple for simple folks like me ;)

Fair enough, I guess most blog owners won't really have an issue with their blog defaulting to something more fitting in smaller screen sizes. It's definitely easier for us to do it that way too :)
