NPR Podcasts to Cell Phone

Via Daily Wireless, NPR is the first major media player to podcast directly to the cell phone.

From the post:

"National Public Radio will become the first major media company to deliver podcasts to mobile phone users using Melodeo software. NPR will deliver 45 of its podcasts, which including All Songs Considered, NPR Story of the Day, and On Gambling with Mike Pesca.

Melodeo helped develop and launch the AOL mobile instant-messaging client as well as the T9 software that’s now embedded on more than one billion handsets.

Their Mobilcast software can be downloaded free, and turns any handset into a portable audio device. Melodeo works on Symbian Series 60, Java, Windows Mobile, and BREW phones, and can build the client directly into handsets. Details are available at the Mobilecast site."
