Phonecasting brings podcasts to mobiles
Phonecasting.com launched its Web site today for the purpose of letting users create “phonecasting” episodes which can be listened to by others over the phone or as a download. Accounts are free for publishers.
The Phonecasting.com service works by having a publisher record a phonecast which can be made available in the Phonecasting directory by auto-generated RSS feeds. Subscriber options for dialup, download and streaming are available to web site members from a computer or mobile phone.
Phonecasting.com seems to have netted a few big name publishers already:
