Got my Hiptop — and already blogging with it

Woo hoo! I had my Danger Hiptop shipped to me yesterday, and it turns out that the browser works perfectly with Movable Type. So one can post to a blog using the device, and in fact I am.

This is going to be really strange — the idea that I can just post anything from anywhere, anytime. It’s not the fastest keyboard in the world, but I will probably get a lot faster at it; probably too fast. One of the big limitations, though, is that you can’t highlight text — which means I won’t be able to use Movable Type’s autoformat tools. If I want to put any URLs in a posting, I’ll have to put the HTML in myself.
