Maybe I'm late to the party. I probably am, but I haven't noticed this mentioned, and maybe it will be useful to some.



Playing around, I found the "get audio" menu item when looking at an RSS podcast feed in the blackberry browser.



For example, point your internet or hotspot browser to



http://detective.rnn.libsynpro.com/rss



Highlight one of the titles, open menu ...



The size of the audio attachment is also shown in the menu.



Very cool.

If anybody else is doing this on the blackberry, I'd be curious what feeds you are following.

I tried the Uncensored History of the Blues podcast produced by the Delta Blues Museum, but the feed doesn't resolve in the blackberry browser.
Just added the John Batchelor Show feed at http://www.wabcradio.com/sectionalRSS.aspx?id=33447. That works, but curiously the download rate is very slow.

Works good. The only issue I had also was slow download.
I suspect it is my location.

thanks for the new toy to play with.

The old time radio podcasts are downloading at 250kB/s for me. The wabc radio talk show podcasts only comes down at 35 kB/s. It will be interesting to see if that is a temporary issue with that site or not.

Note that there is a size limit with the blackberry internet browser. If you get an error that the file is too large and you are using the internet browser, switch to the hotspot browser and try again (if you have WiFi, of course).
