Cingular users get Melodeo podcasts by phone

Cingular Mobile Podcasts

Transferring podcasts to cellphones is possible but is rarely efficient, as cellphones are rarely designed to work directly with news feeds or fit the already low storage space of their memory cards. Melodeo has already developed a solution through its Mobilcast service: users download software that can play podcasts on phones without having to download the podcasts themselves. Today, US carrier Cingular said it would be one of the first to officially adopt Mobilcast for its subscribers. For $5 a month, existing Cingular users can add podcast streaming to their phone, including the option to download copies permanently for later listening. The plan counts towards a subscriber's data usage but could be the best option for podcast subscribers who have to balance their listening habits against frequent phone calls.
