Blogger now has mobile templates

Given more are now surfing using smartphones, it is logical to add a mobile interface for Blogger and to create mobile versions for Blogger's templates. Mobile Templates is available as opt-in functionality on Blogger in Draft. Mobile templates will re-format your blogs for smartphones to enhance your readers’ viewing experience.

In order to activate mobile templates, navigate to Blogger in Draft, then go to Dashboard > Settings > Email & Mobile tab, enable the mobile template option and then save settings.

To test out how a blog will look like on mobile, just add ?m=1 to the URL of any Blogger blog, and you'll get a simplified version that works well on an iPhone, Android phone and probably other phones that use a browser based on WebKit. Here's an example: http://hongjun.blogspot.com/?m=1.

A blog with the mobile template enabled will automatically be showing the mobile version on a mobile device.
