TypePad design comps

[thumbnail image of TypePad comp for photo albums]TypePad’s newsletter has sent out its first message including answers to some frequently asked questions, such as, “Is TypePad just hosted Movable Type?” (it’s not), and so on. The contents of the newsletter are also posted at the TypePad site along with some tantalizing screen shots that give a fairly good idea of the user-interface direction that Mena and Ben et al. are moving toward. No firm word on pricing yet except that there won’t be a free option.
