I wrote about Melodeo when they announced their launch at Gnomedex this year. At the time, their website was crashing and burning all over the place, so I scurried away and promptly forgot about them until today. Alltel Corporation (NYSE: ) and Melodeo today announced the launch of their Axcess Mobilcast Service.
I still say this is mobilcatching and not mobilcasting, but I don't want to pollute the issue with ranting about semantics.
I love the idea of mobilcatching. It's starting to become more common as companies are experimenting with ways of getting podcasts onto today's powerful cellular phones. I don't have high hopes for it in Canada as our data plans are very, very expensive, but I think it will grow elsewhere.
