Nokia N91 to carry podcasting application
Nokia announced the beta release of the Nokia Podcasting Application for Nokia N91 and other Nokia s60 3rd edition devices.
The application, free for download at www.nokia.com/podcasting, will allow users to find and download audio and video podcasts directly to their Nokia Nseries multimedia computer, Nokia said in a release.
In addition, Nokia also noted that users could play previews while tracks were downloading, download multiple podcasts at the same time, personalize the application by adding new podcasts and directories, share and import OMPL files, and interact via mobile Internet links to add comments to podcasters' blogs or Web sites.
"Podcasting is a rapidly growing communications medium with more and more people accessing and creating them every day. Many news agencies, for instance, already offer podcasts on a wide range of topics," said Tommi Mustonen, director of multimedia at Nokia. "We're adding our support by creating a mobile application that makes it easy to discover and search for podcasts, download podcasts over the air, and subscribe to automatic updates."
"Audio quality is key to enjoying a podcast, which makes a powerful multimedia computer like the Nokia N91 an excellent choice for a great podcasting experience," Mustonen added. "By allowing you to subscribe podcasts directly to your Nokia N91, you no longer need to sit at your PC. Instead, you have access to a wide range of content in the palm of your hand."
