From the press release:
“Launching Didiom on the BlackBerry App World is a giant step forward for us in reaching the rapidly-growing BlackBerry community,” said Ran Assaf, Didiom’s founder and CEO. “Didiom doesn’t only eliminate the need for synching your iTunes library with your phone via USB; it also shifts the paradigm on how we mobilize our home computer’s media library. When you wait for a flight, stand in line at a busy Starbucks, or walk your dog, you can easily access your computer from your phone and stream anything from the latest audiobooks you’ve downloaded from Barnes & Noble to the latest podcasts you’ve downloaded from CNN, The Wall Street Journal, or ESPN.”
Didiom’s hybrid service is built upon the company’s proprietary, placeshifting technology and wireless content delivery platform. Throughout the beta period, Didiom offers a free mobile application for BlackBerry and Windows Mobile phones, as well as a desktop application that seamlessly scans users’ personal computers, and maintains an encrypted channel between the user’s computer and phone. When users add new audio files to their computer, Didiom’s desktop application automatically scans and makes them available for wireless streaming on their phone.
With the mobile and publishing industries at a critical turning point, the market for placeshifting of audiobooks and podcasts presents attractive growth opportunities. Didiom has recently expanded its public beta test to include PC-to-phone streaming of audiobooks and podcasts. The audiobook market has been growing steadily for more than a decade. According to a new study by the Audio Publishers Association, downloadable audiobooks accounted for 21 percent of audiobook sales in 2008, up from 17 percent in 2007.
