Podcast Alley & PodShow Feature Podcasts on Nokia Phones

With the release of the Nokia N91 phone came an even more important announcement (at least to the podcasting community). Nokia has also decided to include a podcasting client featuring the PodShow Top 10, Podcast Alley Picks and podcasts from Digital Podcast as well. It is now in beta testing and is claiming to work with more phones (S60 3rd Edition handsets). It is always exciting to see new applications being built and new companies getting into podcasting like this.

Podcast Alley & PodShow on Nokia

A bit from Nokia:

Podcasts can downloaded be downloaded in the background by the application. The default behaviour of the application is for manual downloads (user must select an entry within a podcast listing to download), but the application can also be set to download podcasts automatically at predefined intervals.

Within settings you can also specify the maximum amount of space you want podcast to use on your memory card.

Subscribed podcast are listed in the Podcast section of the application. Clicking on a listed podcast brings up a list of the episodes / shows available for that podcast. From here additional information about the podcast or individual episode can be viewed, downloaded podcasts can be deleted and downloads of individual episodes started.

Podcasts are played back using the default Music Player application. The Music Player application includes control to fast forward and rewind through audio files (click and hold on the previous and next buttons).

    Award-winning actor and film-maker, Gary Oldman today unveiled a pioneering new mobile video initiative, the Nokia Nseries Studio, and announced plans to shoot a short film with the new Nokia N93 multimedia computer, also introduced today.

    Advanced mobile video devices like the Nokia N93 offer the unique ability to capture and share spontaneous instants in everyday life.

    To encourage people to shoot and share these moving moments, Nokia has created the Nokia Nseries Studio, a new interactive online community for mobile movies.

    Today and regularly over the next few months, a selection of these mobile movies will be premiered on the Nokia Nseries Studio where they’re available for downloading to mobile devices or PCs.

    In the summer, Nokia is planning to open up the site so people can upload and showcase their own mobile short films.
