Wordpress WPtouch

With the increasing adoption of mobile internet usage WordPress has announced that from today users of it’s hosted blogging platform will now have access to two mobile themes which will automatically load when the users site is accessed by a mobile device.

The two themes available include a modification of the popular WPtouch for modern mobile browsers. The second is a variation on the older WordPress Mobile Edition which will display for other compatible handsets. Users will also have the option to disable the feature should they wish to do so.

WordPress claims that over 60 million page views are generated each month from mobile devices, and this increasing usage was a major reason for the move to ensure support for mobile devices.
