I saw a post mentioning that Google has moved their official blog over to Blogger.com and Blogspot (which only makes sense). I, of course, headed over to check it out, and this was the post I first saw.
Blogger has launched Blogger Mobile. Just send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also visit their site at go.blogger.com.
The first thing I did was try a test from my new Treo 650. I’ve got it set up to access my GMail account via POP, so I sent a test post. This is what I got in reply:
Blogger post failed
Your mobile provider (rproxy.gmail.com) is not yet supported.
Error code: 2.14FCBA3
Hmm. They don’t support GMail. Strange.
Next, I fired off another test message as an SMS, through my provider, T-Mobile. They have an SMS-to-email gateway. No response back on that one yet. They’re supposed to send a “Claim Code” in response to emails, so you can log in and customize more settings (presumably things like which blog you want to post to, etc.).
More updates to come as I try to figure this out. I’d love to be able to easily post to my blogs from my mobile devices. Blogger.com’s interface is broken in Pocket IE on the Pocket PC and other browsers, and I’ve been using AvantBlog, which works, but doesn’t let me add a Title to a post. My fingers are crossed for Blogger Mobile, but it’s looking kind of bleak right now…
