Blackberry Blues

I've been off the internet for a few days now, and have been relegated to using my Blackberry to emulate the tasks I typically perform on the PC. Tried accessing blogger with the inbuilt browser, which turned out to be a dead end. Had to download Opera Mini, and even then, could only access it through the old interface.

I heard WordPress works like magic on mobile devices, and this is the first instance where I found myself questioning my decision to blog with Google's Blogger. Is it too much to ask for a dedicated Blogger app for Blackberry? Or at least a website optimized for mobile devices?

The closest the guys at Google have come to a solution is something called Mail-to-Blogger, using which you could make a post by sending it as an email to a specified address. Don't know how well this works, but if you're reading this post, then I guess it gets the job done. Now, time to rest my fingers; this keypad is killing me.
