Success. I’m heading down to Malaga on a Ryanair flight in a few days to meet Tim Cullen and get out into the limestone serrania around the Sierra de las Nieves for some scrambling and rambling. I travel hand baggage class these days, so everything has to be light. But typing on phone screens is a pain, so I hacked a sony e-reader to blog on this evening. I just wrote this post with it. 🙂
And after saving the post as a draft online, I can edit it with the WordPress app on the phone and insert a photo or two.
How cool is that?
A clever Russian going by the handle ‘Rupor’ has written some useful patches for the e-reader to unleash the potential of the Android operating system underlying Sony’s firmware. After applying them, the WordPress for Android app installed flawlessly, et voila!
Just under 6oz for a unix platform with a 6″ E-ink screen I can read in bright sunlight, and a two week battery life. Exactly what every backpacking, sunseeking blogger needs.
Happy I am. 🙂
