Nokia Audiobooks Application
This is a good news for all you book worms out their with Nokia phones.Nokia beta-labs has come up with the Nokia Audiobooks application. I hope what do you mean by Audiobooks, you can listen them i.e. somebody will read it for you so that you just relax and listen to that Audiobook. Nokia Audiobooks application will allow you to listen to your favorite Audiobooks while you are on the move. This application includes a highly efficient audio compression technology optimized for voice (AMR-WB), a player application for S60 (Nokia Audiobook Player), and an audio converter tool for PC (Nokia Audiobook Manager). This application is made for Audiobooks; it will help you in listening them with clarity and also browse chapters. Cool.
[From Nokia Audiobooks Download Page]
“A typical 400 page novel translates into a 10-20 hours long Audiobook, which would traditionally take more than dozen CDs or hundreds of megabytes of low-quality MP3 files. Nokia Audiobooks uses a codec called AMR-WB, which is optimized for voice. With Nokia Audiobooks, you will get 5-10 times more content to your phone with similar voice quality, compared to content compressed with MP3 at 64 or 128 kbps. Consequently, you can easily store multiple Audiobooks on your memory card – and still have plenty of capacity left for other things (like pics and video) you find important in life.”
