New Touch-Friendly UI For WordPress Blogs

I just noticed this last night; don’t know when they started implementing it, but WordPress blogs (not the self-hosted ones, though) have an automatic touch-friendly layout and UI if you open the blog on a tablet (I used an iPad for this). I think it’s pretty cool, although I know some people would hate how this layout would override their original WordPress theme.

Here are some screenshots:

After some digging, this feature was launched by WordPress on March 23rd, 2011 – see the announcement here: http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2011/03/23/ipad-onswipe-theme/
