Default is the 7130e able to get streaming media (webcats)?

Please Login to Remove!

Am I able to use my blackberry 7130e to get a webcast/audio/streaming media? I was hoping to be able to go to a website and listen to audio from a webcast. THANKS for the help. I am told the treo 700w can do this, and am hoping my new blackberry can do thisd!

bbTV powered by Sona Mobile is currently your best bet option.

and there are not 3rd party apllications to enable this? If not, do you feel this is a weakness of the blackberry? I am bummbed -- I love my new 7130e yet need to listen to certain webcasts for work (financial webcasts) and would even like to listen to NPR amnd other radio etc. If I ultimately move to the treo 700w -- what will i be missing by leaving the blasckberry?

Blackberries are still pretty much considered as devices for the business world without entertainment features, mainly to be used for email, contacts & appointments. I'm sure RIM now realizes that it is becoming popular for just about everyone which is why the 8100 will soon be released for T-Mobile which will have a memory card, play mp3's, videos, etc. The Treo and BB are still 2 different types of devices with different operating systems and features. A corporate business will give their employees BB's, not Treo's.
Just my $.02
