[blipit id=”1065865″]

This Friday (July 11th, 2008), Apple will be unleashing the long awaited 3G iPhone. Besides our credit sinking blackholes faster than you can say “Large Hadron Collider“, what else does this mean?

In February, Google reported a surge of mobile users searching online. Chances are, that’s how they’ll be coming across your blog.

So then… Have you made your blog iPhone-friendly yet?

If you said no, I don’t blame you. I’m no CSS expert myself, but wait… What about those free and easy WordPress plug-ins to give mobile readers (and yourself) that special iPhone stylin’ experience?

In this episode of theorycast, I’ll showcase Dale’s amazing WPtouch plugin for an iPhone client theme, his Blip.it iPhone handler for mobile video playback, as well as the WPhone Admin Plugin so you can blog in true iPhone style.

After this quick little project, you’ll want to make sure you have a heavy-duty paper towels ready… you’ll be dripping slickness by the gallon. ;D

BTW: If you like this article (I really do), then help me digg it!

    That was an excellent introduction to the iPhone plugins for WordPress – I will be installing them today!

    I was wondering what dock you were using for your iPhone? It looked like a Belkin, but I can’t seem to find it anywhere.

    Rob, it’s called the Belkin Tunesync. It could be discontinued since it came out in 2005, but I got mine from a Woot sale. Here are a bunch of photos I took of it.

    I was considering having a deadmule.com app developed.
