RIM Launches BlackBerry Podcasts

by Volker Weber

WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 11, 2010) - Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ:RIMM)(TSX:RIM) today launched BlackBerry(R) Podcasts, a free application and service that allows BlackBerry(R) smartphone users to easily discover, acquire and enjoy podcasts from leading content providers. ...

BlackBerry Podcasts is available free(i) on BlackBerry App World(TM) (www.blackberry.com/appworld) for BlackBerry smartphones running BlackBerry OS v4.6 or higher.

Looks like it's not available here in Germany though. At least I cannot find it in App World.

Update: Apparently stuff finds me.

Finally RIM is thinking beyond the e-mail only side of the BB! I have been using Podcaster on my BB for some time a,d can't live without my podcasts. I will download and have a look at it and see if I want to replace my (paid for) current product with this freebee.

All that's missing is the capability to play streaming radio with a free app. I have recently discovered Nobex Radio companion, but they charge $4 a month - a bit too much for my taste, but I understand they have to maintain the infrastructure to relay all these radiostations. Another cool app: adidas miCoach.
