OverDrive Audiobook App for BlackBerry Now Available

From the announcement:

OverDrive has expanded on-the-go access for library patrons with the beta release of an audiobook app (mobile version of OverDrive® Media Console™) for BlackBerry®. Popular devices like the BlackBerry Storm™ and BlackBerry Curve™ can now be used to download MP3 audiobooks from your library's digital collection anytime, anywhere.The audiobook app for BlackBerry® joins the mobile suite of apps that are already available for Windows Mobile® and Android™ devices. To download an audiobook app, users can visit http://www.overdrive.com/software/omc.

For all audiobook apps, mobile phone users will visit a mobile-optimized version of your website, then browse the collection of MP3 audiobooks, download a title directly to their phone, and enjoy listening immediately. These audiobook apps (OverDrive® Media Console™ for mobile devices) provide the same superior audiobook experience as OverDrive's desktop software. Users can navigate downloaded parts using MediaMarkers™, create bookmarks, and resume from the last point played. Audiobooks from the library automatically expire so there are never late fees.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
