Audible has been beta testing their audio book application for quite awhile. I remember checking on it a year ago! My buddy Kevin over at CrackBerry spotted the fact that Audible for BlackBerry is finally available.
From the description:
Audible for BlackBerry is the complete Audible experience for BlackBerry smartphones. Whether you’re new to Audible or an existing customer, this free application allows for seamless integration between your BlackBerry Curve, Pearl, 8800, Bold, or Storm and the Audible.com website.
Comes with a FREE download of Thomas Friedman’s best-seller Hot, Flat, and Crowded.
- Sample, purchase, stream, and download over 60,000 titles directly to your handset.
- Explore the Free channel, featuring premium content hand-picked by Audible editors.
- All purchases are processed through Audible’s secure servers.
Audible sent the following email to subscribers earlier this week:
Listeners, we’ve listened to you and we have an announcement:

Our new wireless application, Audible for BlackBerry, provides the complete Audible experience, right on your BlackBerry:

Download it now and receive a free download of Hot, Flat, and Crowded by best-selling author and syndicated columnist Thomas Friedman.
