“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,” says Tommi Mustonen, Director, Multimedia, 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.”

The Nokia Podcasting Application also allows you to play previews while tracks are downloading, download multiple podcasts simultaneously, and multi-task while downloading in the background. You can 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 websites. Podcasts downloaded from the PC can also be transferred to the mobile device.”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,” adds Mustonen. “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.”

The Nokia N91 multimedia computer includes a 4GB hard drive, 3.5 mm stereo headset jack, easy computer synchronization with Windows Media Player, dedicated music keys and wireless LAN support.
