Blogging from a mobile device… (iPhone)

Well I’ve succumbed to the new Apple iPhone 3G and whilst it’s a fantastic device for consuming content, it’s virtual keyboard doesn’t make it the best for publishing… This said I’m comparing it to my Windows Mobile device (an Orange SPV M3100 / HTC Hermes) which has a great physical keyboard.

I’ve had the iPhone almost a week and have ported my number over from Orange (of 14 years!!) to O2 who are the only UK operator to have the device – I spoke with Orange before obtaining my PUK code and it was clear there are no plans for them to be offering this device, a shame and I’m sure many O2 will be getting a lot of new customers as a result!

Anyway, blogging from the iPhone. Today I found the wordpress blogging app (free :-)), and installed, which like almost everything on the iPhone was painless, quick, and without problems… Thus far and fingers crossed!

The wordpress app is the one for me as I already had a wordpress blog that I started earlier in the year after much resistance. As CTO of technology consulting firm ‘The Full Circle’ ( I’d been slow to give in and acknowledge the power of the blahhhg ūüėČ

I’m writing this entry now and whilst the keyboard is a pain I’m getting quicker and more efficient (less errors) with every line – it can only get better!

I’m about to add a picture using the perfectly adequate built in camera (but wot no video!?!?!). The picture is of our pool, well not our pool but it is for a short time (holidaying in Portugal for a couple of weeks – bliss!) and will check out the results later – hopefully good and no flames in the meantime!
