Thanks to BraveNewCode for the cool plug-in WPtouch.

Currently the WPtouch plug-in supports the following devices: iPhone, iPod touch, Android, Palm Pre/Pixi, and BlackBerry Storm.

I would recommend this great plug-in to anyone using WordPress. Now there is no excuse not to support touch based smartphones on your blog.

Next task a better syntax highlighter WP plug-in. Any recommendations? You know what to do.
