WordPress blogging on the Nokia N900

| November 28, 2009 | 23 Replies

If you’re reading this, then this demonstrate the N900 can use the native wordpress.com site for blogging. No app download, just raw wordpress pretty much how it would appear on your desktop….albeit within the confines of a 800×480 pixel wide screen. Note screenshot below is zoomed.

The flash media uploader looks and acts like the same tool on my pc.

It’s not 100% the same thing. The biggest issue is that the browser snaps the pages to fit within the 800 pixel length, instead giving priority to the left and right panes but not the main text windows.

I wish, like on my N800 there was a way not to ‘view to fit screen’…though with N800 even that doesn’t help.

I think it’s good enough for most types of blogging. I can post links, copied from another window,

  • create
  • lists
  • using
  • bullet points

insert headings

change font colour, underline, italics, bold, copy and paste…copy and paste….copy and paste…etc…

…so you’ve pretty much got the formatting sorted.

And it’s also a testament to the keyboard that you can write pretty lengthy posts with it at reasonable speed, as well as the added convenienve of mobile broadband using 3.5G to post without the confines of a WiFi spot.

Mobile Blogging on the go? Most definitely! This is my first post completely from the N900 and wordpress direct but it certainly won’t be the last.
